Clarence Clemons died yesterday and the world is smaller for it.
Arts and Culture
I've seen Bruce and the band about 15 times since the early 80's - never in a venue smaller than an arena, unfortunately. But I've been lucky enough a few times to sit close enough to the stage to hear the instruments as the band hears them - not amplified through the towers of speakers. Clarence's sound was so big and warm it sent chills down your spine to behold it up close. Aside from his epic Jungleland solo, my favorite tune featuring the Big Man is Night. That one really showcases the damage he and the Boss could do together.
Thanks for the amazing music, Clarence.
I haven't been able to figure out what to say, except to say thanks to Clarence for being a part of some of the best times I've ever had.
That's an interesting version. I've never heard it before. Sounds more like the early Bruce of "Greetings..."
Horrible loss. Too young.
