Steven Van Zandt, guitarist for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, has recently revealed he was addicted to threesomes during the 1970s in his new memoir.

The memoir, titled Unrequited Infatuation, explores Van Zandt’s time with a then-unknown Springsteen during his early career, right through to his most recent work. In the book he writes that he loved threesomes so much at the time that he “developed a temporary addiction to ménages à trois.”

In an interview with Page Six, Van Zandt noted that “It was a real, sexually liberated time” adding, “The ’70s, there’s never been anything quite like it, honestly. It was just a wild, wild time, and women were truly, truly liberated there for a minute. I mean, it was a really wonderful time to be alive. So, you know, ménages à trois [were] not that unusual.”

It was falling in love with his wife Maureen that allegedly led to the guitarist applying the brakes – the two married in 1982 in a ceremony that was officiated by Little Richard and with Springsteen as best man.

Van Zandt starred in The Sopranos as Silvio Dante and released work as a solo artist and with his own band, Little Steven and The Disciples of Soul.

Springsteen has recently released another live album, The Live Series: Songs Of Location and is due to tour next year. It was reported that he was the highest paid musician of 2021, earning almost $600 million which is likely down to the sale of his catalogue of music to Sony, his podcast with Barack Obama and continued touring.
