The Big Man goes to The Big Man – Clarence Clemons dead at 69
It’s a depressing thought that many of my recent entries are obituaries. We seem to be losing too many legends, and Clarence clemons is no exception. While I’m not a big fan of Springsteen’s music (though I like his songwriting) the massive personality of Clemons’ sax is all over The Boss’s work like a rash, and in a good way. If he’d only recorded ‘Born to Run’ it’s enough to make him the stuff of legend, and the music world will be a sadder place without him. The fact that he was the only member of the E street band to appear on that iconic album cover says it all. R.I.P. Clarence.
