Den smått legendariska saxofonisten från E Street Band fick en stroke för en vecka sedan vilket han aldrig återhämtade sig ifrån. Igår gick han bort, 69 år gammal.

Bruce Springsteens uttalande om sin vän och tillika bandmedlem sedan 1972:

“Clarence lived a wonderful life. He carried within him a love of people that made them love him. He created a wondrous and extended family. He loved the saxophone, loved our fans and gave everything he had every night he stepped on stage. His loss is immeasurable and we are honored and thankful to have known him and had the opportunity to stand beside him for nearly forty years. He was my great friend, my partner, and with Clarence at my side, my band and I were able to tell a story far deeper than those simply contained in our music. His life, his memory, and his love will live on in that story and in our band.”

Trist, inte många saxofonister man känner till men Clemons tillhör dom. Han var självklart del Springsteens framgång.
Förvånad att han var närmare 70, han hade inte riktigt den gubbiga imagen.

En av dom få låtar Clemons "sjunger" och givetvis spelar sax. Usel bildkvalitet men vadå..
