We lost Clarence Clemons this past week. Clarence was with Bruce from the begining. During the early days, they shared the dream of stardom. They both achieved it. He entertained millions the world over, Presidents and Kings and Queens yet never forgot his humble beginings. He was a man of the people.  I'll tell you a story.

His Mom & Dad both loved live music and went to see jazz great Sil Austin one evening. On the way home, she said "Clarence has a birthday comin up, he wants a train set" His dad thought for several moments then replied "No, he's too old for that". She said "What do you want to get him then?". "A saxaphone" he said.

Enjoy the pix.
