Clarence Clemons may not have been a jazzer per se but, Lord, could he make that saxophone sing!  He defines the word "irreplaceable" and the E Street Band will never be the same without him.  If not for him Bruce's ensemble would've been just another rock group.  He will be missed by millions.
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord...

Yeah, I always liked Clemons, it won't be the same band without him, I guess I was never a huge fan of 'the boss', but I know his shows were inspiring to many and Clemons was a big part of that.

I never knew if he did something out of the E Street Band until yesterday and the news about his death.
Turns out he did with J Brown! I'll have to check it out soon.
 
RIP.

This news had already been spread to Japan. His name and performance will be succeeded.

What Clarence Clemons died? I did not know. Anybody got a link for the story. Who can ever forget "JungleLand". Really sad for me. What about Aretha Franklin's, "Freeway of Love". So many great rock solo's. He was the best BeerShockedCry
