I guess we all knew this one was coming, after his stroke last weekend. It seems like yesterday but it was 18 months since I saw the E Street Band play what would become Clarence's next to last gig in Baltimore. He wasn't moving well then, but the saxophone was bold as ever. My favorite Springsteen song is 'Jungleland' and Clarence's solo on that song never fails to bring me to tears, and it did again that night.

If there's a rock'n'roll heaven, they just made one helluva addition to the horn section.
