Clarence Clemons RIP

Bruce Springsteen's longtime Virginia-born saxophonist Clarence Clemons died yesterday in Florida. Clemons suffered a stroke on June 12, and passed away from those complications. Bruce Springsteen released this statement concerning the passing of his old friend:

"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."

The flag flies at half mast,

James Calemine
