Some words for Clarence "Big Man" Clemons, member of the E Street Band, who passed away on June 18.

As much as I love Queen, I grew up loving Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band´s music too. 

Clarence´s saxophone will be attached forever to some precious memories from my childhood, youth and maturity.

Thanks for the magic moments, Big Man, you´ll be missed.

RIP

Vali

Well thats a bit of a shocker. Probably means the end of the E Street Band now to be honest......

Anyway, cheers "Big Man" for the memories as well

A big loss to the world of music.  No doubt Clarence Clemons was a big part of Springsteen's success.

Every month or so we lose another legend.  25 years from now, they're all going to be gone.  We can only wonder what things will be like then..

Seeing a Springsteen/E Street show is probably top on my concert bucket list.  I never imagined it would be without the big man if it will ever be at all.  Really sad.  His last video follows.  Funny to have one of the last images of him tied to a pop song, but nice that he was the only other person in the video and nice that he went out looking so damn cool. :)

Of course!  It was actually posted on the Curse thread before it was posted here. :)
