    As a huge Springsteen fan I feel saddened and a sense of loss today. My Sunday morning has "Born to Run"playing in the background.
    RIP "Big Man" thank you for 40 years of complete awesomeness

    I know and damn!!

    This is the first "Music Loss" to hit me personally or punch me in the gut.
    Right now, I long to hold my sax and make it scream.

    [video=youtube;5e4-20tqC4A][/video]He caused me to want to learn the sax, but I never took it up. I loved Springsteen's early albums, I saw The Big Man play several times. Clarence will be missed.

    Today's soundtrack of my life is Darkness at the Edge of town; it worked well with Father's Day.

    Clarence and Badland's...just pure and RAW.

    But this what motivated me to play Tenor Sax - my cousin collected music and felt he had a mission to stop another foolish girl from playing Alto Sax.

    Saw Darkness on the Edge of Town tour. Best concert of the about 200 I've seen. Four hours long,don't know how they did that every night. Nobody else was like them. Very sad day for sure.

    I saw their show at Fenway Park in 2003. It was truly a life changing experience. The "Big Man" was the E Street Band. He will be truly missed. He was a great musician and a better showman. God Bless Clarence Clemons and his family.
