PISCATAWAY — After years of standing beside Bruce Springsteen at concert venues around the world, E Street Band member Steven Van Zandt took center stage at Rutgers University’s commencement Sunday.
The 66-year-old musician gave a 30-minute graduation speech passing on wisdom from his years as a rock musician, actor, activist and entrepreneur. Rutgers gave “The Sopranos” actor an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree, making him “Dr. Van Zandt.”
Here are some of the lines from Van Zandt’s speech that got some of the loudest applause and the biggest laughs from the crowd at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway.
