Clarence Clemons RIP (1942 – 2011)

I woke this morning to the news that the legendary Clarence Clemons died last night. At 69 he had played with most of the greats and made his mark on music, but will most be remembered as an original member of The E Street Band.

It is a sad day and I can say no more about it. Just watch the performance below, especially Clarence’s solo at the 4:20 mark from Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s relatively recent show at Hyde Park; one musicscramble were particularly lucky to have attended.
