Non ce l'ha fatta Clarence "Big Man" Clemons. Big Man ha lasciato un vuoto incolmabile nella E Street Band e nei nostri cuori. Io ho avuto il piacere di vederlo una sola volta, al mitico concerto di Springsteen a Milano nel 2003 (per intenderci quello del diluvio universale).

Questo il ricordo di Bruce Springsteen:
"Clarence lived a wonderful life. He carried within him a love of people that made them love him. He created a wondrous and extended family. He loved the saxophone, loved our fans and gave everything he had every night he stepped on stage. His loss is immeasurable and we are honored and thankful to have known him and had the opportunity to stand beside him for nearly forty years. He was my great friend, my partner, and with Clarence at my side, my band and I were able to tell a story far deeper than those simply contained in our music. His life, his memory, and his love will live on in that story and in our band. "

Ciao Big Man, ci mancherai davvero un casino!
