Steven Van Zandt plans social media site for musicians

Little Steven gets in the social media act.

Steven Van Zandt, an actor and musician known for his turns on “The Sopranos” and Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, is launching a music-themed social-networking site that he said will serve as a hub for insider information and advice directly from bands.

The site, Fuzztopia (currently in beta), is expected to launch in three to six months, Mr. Van Zandt said, and he is looking for funding in the low eight figures to get “from the present tense to the future.”

Given his passion for rock music and all of his connections, this idea seems plausible. MySpace currently dominates the playing field in music, but there should be room for another player.
