Clarence Celmons: 1942 – 2011

It was with sadness that I turned on my computer on Saturday night to find out that Clarence Clemons had passed away. Clarence wasn’t just a saxophonist for a rock band; he was a world class musician and a talented performer and entertainer. His nickname “The Big Man,” was a reference to his size, his sound, and his overall presence.

But while we feel sadness over his death, we also feel happiness with the beauty and joy that he brought into the world with his music. So crank these songs all the way up. Let Clarence’s horn ring through, and listen to The Big Man do what he did best.
