Clarence Clemons RIP

I think the first time I came across the talents of the sadly late Clarence Clemons was on The Old Grey Whistle Test when they were showing a video of the E-Street Band playing 'Rosalita'. I just loved the interplay between Clemons and Springsteen on stage - an obvious chemistry between them that shone through the music they produced.

I later went on to discover more the the band's output, in particular the awesome 'Born To Run'. The world of music has lost a great man and a fine musician - rest in peace, and thanks for the music and the memories.
