Nils Lofgren: 50 years of ‘just being a guy in the band’

Clip: 12/15/2018 | 9m 16s

As we learned a few years ago in the Oscar-winning film “20 Feet from Stardom,” sometimes the best singers in the band are those who are seldom center-stage. They have the game, just not quite the fame. The same can be said for guitar players as well, including one rock and roll hall-of-famer who is celebrating his golden anniversary in the business. NewsHour Weekend's Tom Casciato has the story.
