Musical Interlude ~Born to Run

Clarence Clemons, seminal sax player for the E Street Band, passed last night after a stroke at  69. In this video, the joy and silliness of rock n roll is prominent, and is not a reflection of my nostalgia for youth and all it's follies, but a tribute to the Big Man, spiritually bigger than I'll ever be, and what he brought to his own life and the lives of others. All my gratitude for his time with us.

  2. I can't even count the times I have been privileged to watch the Boss, Clarence and the
    E Street Band on stage ...... I'm beyond sad today.

  3. That sucks. I had heard just today or yesterday that he had suffered a stroke. He'll be missed.
