Once again, Clarence Clemons, the heart and soul of the E Street Band, died today. I have loved and enjoyed Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band for most of my life, going back to when I was a kid. I have seen them perform many times and no matter what, the songs always sound fresh and as if they were written in the present. The highlights of so many of the concerts have been Clarence's performances on the saxophone on songs such as "Tenth Avenue Freeze Out", "Spirits in the Night", "Rosalita", "Prove It All Night", "Out on the Street" and I could go on and on. The songs will never sound the same without Clarence.

One of the things that defines who I am can be found in music, specifically, rock n' roll. I am, and have always been, a rocker. I am very sad about the passing of Clarence Clemons, "the Big Man", from the E Street Band. Clarence has been the heart of the band for 40 years. It was hard to narrow down a song that really captures Clarence's magic and so, instead, I picked "Glory Days" because it epitomizes all of the good times the band and Bruce, and all of us have had. The band will play on, but it will NEVER be the same... Rest in peace, Clarence.
