Clarence Clemons RIP

January 11, 1942 – June 18, 2011

 

Clarence Clemons, saxophonist with Bruce Springsteen‘s E Street Band, has died aged 69.

The musician had been in hospital since suffering a stroke at his Florida home last weekend (June 11-12) and passed away yesterday (18), a spokesman for the band confirmed to BBC News.

Springsteen led the tributes to his “great friend” in a statement on his website, BruceSpringsteen.net, where he spoke of his “overwhelming” loss.

Here the best tribute that I can provide is to show him at his best.

 

 

 

Two E-Street Band concerts feature in my Top 10 all time gigs, Edinburgh Playhouse in 1981 (a sleep out all night for tickets job) before he went mega and Wembley Stadium on 4th July (my birthday!) 1985 things can never be the same for Springsteen and the remaining group members now.
