RIP Clarence Clemons

20 Jun

The Big Man has joined Heaven’s Great Rock ‘n Roll Band.

I saw him first in 1981 with Bruce Springsteen. To say that this band could blow the roof off, is an understatement.

Here’s a nice obituary on Clarence Clemons.

Goodbye, sir. It happened much too soon.

“When the change was made uptown

And the Big Man joined the band

From the coastline to the city

All the little pretties raise their hands

I’m gonna sit back right easy and laugh

When Scooter and the Big Man bust this city in half”
