Clarence Clemons 'The Big Man" E-Street Saxophonist & Bruce Springsteen Pal RIP

Clarence Clemons, the Big Man passed away on Saturday, June 18th after suffering a Stroke the previous week. I think that we all can thank Clarence for all of the great saxophone work and his larger than life presence in the E-Street Band. He will indeed be sorely missed by music fans around the world and his musical legacy speaks for itself. One can only hope that the budding musicians out there will appreciate and learn from his huge catalog of phenomenal performances in the studio, live and with the E-Street Band. His contributions were just enormous. Born To Run, Badlands, Prove it All Night, Rosalita, I just can't imagine those songs without the Clarence Clemons sax solos. He is truly the soul and backbone of the E Street Band. The energy levels of these songs were cranked up several notches whenever his sax solos would appear. Clarence Clemons, The Big Man, The Myth and the Legend of the E Street Band.
