Often introduced during Springsteen’s mammoth E Street Band shows as the “Tennessee Terror,” Tallent was born in Detroit and grew up in New Jersey. The “Tennessee Terror” moniker supposedly came about following a drive through the Volunteer State.

Tallent has an album to go along with his tour. The rockabilly-packed Break Time is available on vinyl and CD as well as via digital downloads. 

Break Time just might be an apt description of Tallent’s 2017 situation. A founding member of E Street, Tallent will be part of Springsteen’s Australia / New Zealand tour beginning next week and running through February.
