Clarence Clemons died today, of complications from the stroke he suffered last week. He was 69.
The world lost a good one. : (

It's kind of a surprise to me, because the last I heard, he was getting better. Big loss to Bruce, and the band, and all the fans.
Condolences to his family and friends.

A statement from Bruce Springsteen.

"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 oppurtunity (sic) 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."

Found out about a half hour ago. I'm pretty broken up, actually. One of the main soundtracks to my high school years was early Springsteen. All that drama, that epic romanticism just seemed to make so much sense. And so many of those songs seemed to climax with that magnificent sax. I was there in '76 when Bruce played his first ever arena gig at the Spectrum and it's still one of the greatest concerts I ever saw. So triumphant -- not just for the band but for all the Philly fans who'd embraced Bruce years before anyone else. And that night, Clarence was an absolute force of nature.

God bless you, Big Man. Heaven is wailing tonight.
