Clarence Clemons RIP

Sad Day. Springsteen and E Street are arguably the greatest live performers of our time and his role in that is central. If you can get a hold of them playing in Paris in 1985 do. It's a phenomenal live performance. The kind that is replicated very rarely amongst performers today.

Steven Van Zandt of the E Street Band has this cool weekly radio show called the Underground Garage, and he paid tribute to fallen bandmate Clarence Clemons last Sunday. Sweet and sad, he told of how Bruce felt the band needed a sax player, like so many of his influences (think '50s). Dominant tenor sax and soulful vocals, the E Street Band won't be the same without The Big Man.

Last time I saw them, they did this touching song, and the middle is all Clarence:

"So, I’ll miss my friend, his sax, the force of nature his sound was, his glory, his foolishness, his accomplishments, his face, his hands, his humor, his skin, his noise, his confusion, his power, his peace. But his love and his story, the story that he gave me, that he whispered in my ear, that he allowed me to tell… and that he gave to you… is gonna carry on. I’m no mystic, but the undertow, the mystery and power of Clarence and my friendship leads me to believe we must have stood together in other, older times, along other rivers, in other cities, in other fields, doing our modest version of god’s work… work that’s still unfinished. So I won’t say goodbye to my brother, I’ll simply say, see you in the next life, further on up the road, where we will once again pick up that work, and get it done." - Bruce Springsteen
