Aside from music, Nils is an athlete and sports is never far from his mind, even when he's on tour, his stage backflips are legendary (useless fact you should know: one Peterson staffer was on the stage crew setting up a trampoline for him on an early 1990s gig in Hamburg, Germany).
Nils plays a wide variety of instruments, "I’ve become the “swingman” in the band, by playing lap steel, pedal steel, Dobro and bottleneck guitar. With Bruce and Steven playing electric, and Patti (Scialfa, Bruce’s wife) and Soozie (Tyrell, violin and acoustic guitar) playing acoustic, we don’t always need five guitar players, so I started playing everything else. I have some beautiful Carter pedal steel guitars, and some terrific resonator guitars". Nils uses an AutoStrobe 490 on stage with the E-Street Band and is hyper-sensitive to tuning. Being also a steel guitarist, with all the tuning advantages that lap and pedal steel offer, the special features of Peterson tuners make them a natural choice.
