Carter, Ernest

Ernest "Boom" Carter (born Asbury Park, New Jersey) is an American drummer. He has toured and recorded with, among others, Bruce Springsteen, David Sancious, "Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes", The Fairlanes, and Paul Butterfield. During his time with Springsteen, he played the drums on the song "Born to Run". Able to play all forms of rock as well as rhythm and blues, soul and jazz, Carter was formally trained and blends a variety of styles into his drumming. His successor as the drummer with the E Street Band, Max Weinberg later said that Carter devised a jazz fusion part for "Born to Run" that he could never reproduce in concert, and eventually stopped attempting. Although best known as a drummer, Carter is also a guitarist, keyboardist and vocalist and in 2001 he released a solo album, Temple of Boom, singing and playing all of the instruments.
