For Clarence

19 06 2011

It’s all over the news. Clarence Clemons passed away yesterday (6/18) from a stroke. I’ve never been a Springsteen fan and I don’t care too much for saxophone most of the time. Of course, Clarence had a career that went well beyond his work with Bruce. Whatever Clarence was doing, if I saw him on TV, I stopped and watched. He had a magnetic personality, at least on stage. He was simply one of those rare natural entertainers that you couldn’t help but enjoy. There aren’t really words that better describe him for me. Most of the time a musician like him is a bit player in a band, but Clarence was obviously more than that. Why do you think his unfortunate passing is getting all this attention? People loved his music and him. I share their sadness in his passing.
