RIP Clarence Clemons (Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band sax player)

I’m really saddened to hear that ace saxophonist Clarence Clemons passed away tonight. This guy was a legend.

Known as the ‘Big Man’ on account of his imposing 6-foot-5-inch, 270-plus pound frame, Clemons played on some of Springsteen’s greatest works, including the incredible solo on “Jungleland” (which he spent 16 hours perfecting) and the legendary track, “Born To Run.”

RIP Clarence. It was a privilege to have seen you play.
