Rest In Peace Clarence Clemons


Sad news: E Street Band sax player, music legend, and Norfolk native Clarence Clemons has passed away.

Clarence Clemons, Bruce Springsteen’s longtime saxophone player and a legend in the music industry, died Saturday from complications following a stroke he suffered about a week ago.

Clemons’ sax has been one of the most defining elements of the E Street Band’s sound. He has suffered from numerous ailments over the last few years. He had double knee surgery and even had to perform from a wheelchair at one point.

Wow, that one hurts. I’ve been a huge Bruce Springsteen fan for years, and also a big fan of Brooooce’s E Street Band. Sadly, two key members of that band — keyboardist Danny Federici (who died in April 2008) and saxophonist Clarence Clemons — have now left us forever. Rest in peace, “Big Man” — you will live on through your music and will not be forgotten!

    Not many know that prior to his music career taking off he worked in the juvenile justice system and his physical size served him well. His sister is vocally talented herself and an accomplished gospel singer. Like Bruce he was a NJ native way back when.
