It’s with great sadness that we mourn the passing of the talented Clarence Clemons, longtime member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, who died on Saturday due to complications from a stroke. He was 69.
My first experience of Clemons was in the 1984 video for the classic Springsteen single, Dancing in the Dark, although he had been a member of the band since the 70’s. But who can forget this video?
Most recently, Clarence was featured in two songs on Lady Gaga’s Born This Way album, Hair and her third single, The Edge of Glory, introducing his talents to a whole other generation and genre of listeners. He’s prominently featured in The Edge of Glory video.
So long, Big Man.
