“Little Stevie” has done it all in the record industry. His encyclopedic knowledge of rock ’n’ roll since the 1950s permeates every weekly radio show of his syndicated “Underground Garage.” First as co-founder/musical director of Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes to being Bruce Springsteen’s sidekick in the E Street Band to his co-starring role acting in The Sopranos as “Silvio Dante,” Van Zandt is an icon who gives back. In the mid-1980s he led the anti-apartheid effort “Sun City,” and more recently he founded the “TeachRock” program for educators. Fresh off the road this year with his band Little Steven & Disciples of Soul, Van Zandt releases on vinyl his new album, Soulfire Live.
