    I'm going to miss him.
    Especially his Ho-ho-ho's on "Santa Clause is Coming to Town"
    That man was one talented dude on a brass sax.
    R.I.P. and Rock on Forever C.C.!!!

    Needs to be in the Hall along with the rest of the E-Street band. First Danny, and now Clarence. C'mon RRHOF -- before we lose any more of the band!!

    Whew! For a second there, I thought the title said "RIP Clarence Carter."

    Might have to pull out my old Born to Run vinyl and listen to the Big Man on 10th Avenue Freezeout and Jungleland.

    Ah, ****...that's very sad news to start off my Sunday. Springsteen and the E Street Band were one of my first favorite bands. Rest in peace, Big Man.

    Re: RIP Clarence Clemons

    I must admit I thought he died a few year ago!

    Saw Springsteen @ Soldier Field in 1985-- the height of their Born in the USA tour.....with around 80K

    Flew up from Miami same day to meet 25 folks from CR. My flight was delayed by lightening in Miami..

    Before cell phones/internet......my friend was supposed to meet me at a gate to hand me my ticket.

    I took the train from the airport---got off mistakenly near Cabrini Green on a Friday night @ 7pm in the summer......(white guy with a suitcase on a street corner)

    uhhh.. finally a taxi came by, where I had to stop and dump my luggage and rush to Soldier Field late. Made it all the way and the concert started......and no ticket.....

    Luckily ...outside the stadium was deserted--I received a free ticket from an usher and totally lucked out in finding everyone else eventually amid 80K people

    (mind you...I had no idea where anyone was sitting) I was graced by an guardian angel.


    Also saw Springsteen at Hilton in the late fall of 1992--- awesome concert

    RIP Big Man. Best horn player in rock and roll, and probably THE defining element of the E Street Band's sound.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    The greatest side man in rock....and the end of an era.

    Not so fast.




    Definitely agree on the second part. I assumed I would have another chance to see the E Street Band. I'll still probably be able to see Bruce and most of the E Street Band, but it will NOT be the same.

    Kinda like my old man seeing The Who after Keith Moon died.
