Share memories of “Big Man” Clarence Clemons

E-Street Band sax play­er Clarence Clemons died Sat­ur­day after suf­fer­ing a mas­sive stroke last week. He was 69. 

Jun­gle­land, Thun­der Road, Ros­al­i­ta, Born to Run. Wow, Thanks for the mem­o­ries Clarence. I remem­ber see­ing Bruce Spring­steen and the E Street Band at the old McNi­chols Are­na back in the ear­ly 1980s. (Scalp­ing tick­ets for $100 with my Olympic weightlifter boyfriend, who was from Jer­sey and first saw Bruce in the Jer­sey Shore bars.) I blew out the speak­ers on my old record play­er lis­ten­ing to Ros­al­i­ta. Makes me smile even today. Col­lege dorm rooms boom­ing with Bruce on the stereo with Clarence wail­ing on the sax. 

Share your mem­o­ries of Clarence Clemons.
May you find peace on the oth­er side.

    Just catch­ing up on your blog.  Such sad news about Clarence.  I remem­ber the “Born in the USA” Spring­steen con­cert at McNi­chols.  It was freez­ing cold, and snow­ing like crazy.  But Bruce and the band give you your money’s worth and kept on play­ing and play­ing.  I was secret­ly pray­ing that they would stop cause I was freez­ing!

      As soon as I pressed “send” I noticed I typed “McNi­chols’ are­na. The Spring­teen con­cert I was refer­ring to was obvi­ous­ly out­doors and at the old Mile HIgh Sta­di­um.
