Farewell to Clarence Clemons...

     I was in a hotel room in St. Louis when hearing the news of Clarence's passing. He had suffered a stroke about a week before, and died of complications on Saturday. For almost 40 years his tenor saxophone was as distinctive a sound to the E Street Band as the voice of their leader, Bruce Springsteen.
    Clemons had made his claim to fame with Springsteen, but has a long list of credits to his resume recording with artists as diverse as The Four Tops, Twisted Sister, Joe Cocker, and most recently, Lady Gaga. He was also could be found in several movies and television shows through the years.
