Good-bye to the “Big Man”

Learned late Saturday that Clarence Clemons passed away. He was best known as the saxophone player for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. I am sad…they’ll never sound the same again. Clemons, as well as the rest of the gang, made every song sound great. Fortunately, one of my aunts and a good friend of mine introduced me to the band. Another aunt and I went to their concert in 1997–the only time I saw them live. Great show!!

Here’s a 1978 performance of “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out” in Passaic, NJ from YouTube. There were so many great songs that featured Clemons. He’ll be missed.
