Clarence Clemons (* January 11th 1942 – † June 18th 2011)
This defines my first “moment” of seeing the “Biggest Man You’ve Ever Seen”. I saw Bruce Springsteen & the E-Street Band for the first of many times in my life only 2 weeks before this shot, on June 17th 1985 at the Waldstadion in Frankfurt/Main, Germany.
My life should not be the same after those 4 hrs of Drama, Passion, Love and Rock&Roll.
It’s been exactly 26 years ago. I’ve spend and survived my whole adult life with this music.
Clarence Clemons was the incarnation of Drama, Passion, Love, Rock&Roll and everything. Listen to his solo at the end of Thunder Road and you will hear it. The passion, the hope, the promise, the fulfillment, the glory…
He was the heart, the core and the anchor of the biggest band on Earth….
Life won’t be the same after he’s gone.
