He had a stroke earlier in the week...

"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 opportunity 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."

A sad day. I hooked the speakers up to my computer and spent most of the day listening to the E Street Band.

Clarence's solo from Jungleland is one of the greatest in the history of rock and roll on any instrument, in my opinion. It's beauty often brings a tear to my eye, and today was no exception.

Not a big fan of Bruce but did see them at St Bonaventure in the late 70's and there is no show with more energy. And, Clarence was a focal point of the band who along with Bruce, were IMHO, the driving force of the band. 8-) 8-) 8-) He will be greatly missed. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

I agree with the solo on Jungleland...One of the very best
