Growing up around the Jersey shore, Tallent took up first the tuba and then the bass. He was influenced by James Jamerson, Donald "Duck" Dunn, and Paul McCartney. He started playing with Springsteen in 1971 and then was an original member of the E Street Band. His most notable bass parts may be on the song "Fire" and the last verse of "Incident on 57th Street." In addition to his work with Springsteen, Tallent has recorded with numerous other artists. During the 1990s, Tallent moved to Nashville, having an affinity for country and western and rockabilly music. There he opened the MoonDog recording studio and helped start the D'Ville Record Group label.
