The "Big Man," saxophonist Clarence Clemons, has died in Palm Beach, Florida, from complications of a stroke he suffered last Sunday. The beloved 69-year-old musician was born in Norfolk, Virgina, in 1942 and met his most famous collaborator, Bruce Springsteen, at an Asbury Park, New Jersey bar during a lightning storm in 1971. He became a member of the group later known as the E Street Band the following year when the Boss began recording his debut album. For nearly four decades, Clemons provided the soulful blasts that helped define Springsteen's signature sound.

RIP "The Big Man"

Terribly depressed since I was startled by this news yesterday. As a hardcore fan of The Boss, I've seen Clarence perform maybe 25 times over the years in 5 different states and Vancouver - and like Bruce, he never disappointed. Too ****ing sad.
