Unhappy R.I.P. Clarence Clemons

Bruce's sax player passes following a stroke. He was 69.

He will be sorely missed. Love looking at the old concerts on You Tube with Clarence and Bruce interacting on stage.

RIP Clarence. His sax was such a big part of what made the E Street Band's sound so special. Really a big loss.
