    Clarence Clemons...Rest In Peace

    [QUOTE](Reuters) - Clarence Clemons, the burly saxophone player who played a crucial role in shaping Bruce Springsteen's early sound, died on Saturday, six days after suffering a stroke at his Florida home, media reports said. He was 69.

    The New York Times said Clemons' death was confirmed by a spokeswoman for Springsteen. Reuters could not immediately confirm the reports.

    Clemons, dubbed the "Big Man," started working with Springsteen in 1971 and was a charter member of the backing group that came to be known as the E Street Band.

    His gritty, evocative saxophone solos powered such notable Springsteen songs as "Born to Run," "Jungleland," "Prove It All Night," "Tenth Avenue Freeze Out," and "Badlands."[/QUOTE]

    really sad.

    I was just thinking, we are going to now watch all our rock favorites die one by one.

    Good times. Life sucks.

    Saddened to hear this last night.
    CC has lived on Singer Island here in PB County for a long time and was very involved in local charities. He would jump up on whatever stage was at the event and rip out the sax and blow everyone away.
    For those of us 45+ yrs old, the E Street tours from 78-87 seemed like they never stopped, especially 84-85. It was always 'Hey, who's going tonight? Let's scalp.'

    1st - 'Darkness' at MSG, 78 I think?. My intro to something other than 3 chord hard rock.
    Last - 1992 at the old Miami Arena. Bruce had shelved a bunch of the E Street guys. The show was good, just not the same.
    Best memory - one of the 6 shows from August 85 at Giants Stadium that I saw. We get to our seats and see that 10 bikers are sitting in front of us. Sh*t!! This is gonna blow. Someone's gonna throw down.
    Well, 'Santa Claus is Comin' to Town' starts and to watch these 10 dudes whip out Santa hats and sing it word for word while the Stadium literally shook is a lifetime memory. :)

    RIP Big Man!

    RIP Clarence. Next time it thunders, we'll listen for your booming sax tone.
