What a sad day for rock n roll.
Mr Clemons was a driving force with the E Street Band, and imho, there can be no more Bruce Springsteen tours without the formidable saxophonist.

The energy between the Big Man and Bruce was something to witness, the music would catch you up in it, a wonderful experience.


Clemons – known affectionately to fan and friends as the Big Man – was the heart and soul of the E Street Band. His playing on tracks like "Born To Run," "Thunder Road," "Jungleland," "Dancing In The Dark" and countless more represent some of the most famous sax work in the history of rock & roll. "The story I have told throughout my work life I could not have told as well without Clarence," Springsteen wrote ...

Bruce Springsteen on Clarence Clemons: 'His Loss is Immeasurable'
I had no idea Clarence Clemons played with so may other bands and performers.

Agreed. I am a huge Springsteen fan, and this will be a tremendous loss for the E-Street Band as well as the rest of the music world.....
R.I.P. "Big Man", and thank you for all the music.....

Brilliant sax player.. simply brilliant.

The worst thing about getting older is watching people you know of shuffle off the mortal coil, leaving a blank space and great memories.
