Clarence Clemons, The Big Man & His Big Sound Will Be Missed

Clarence Clemons, the saxophonist who played alongside Bruce Springsteen for four decades, passed away today at 69. The Big Man and his sound will be missed.

Above, a simple mournful reminder of what we'll be going without: First up, a soulful solo from "Jungleland," performed in Milwaukee back in March 2008. And then a return to the early days, a youthful performance of "Thunder Road" recorded at the Capitol Theatre, Passaic, NJ (1978). Clarence takes over at the 6:12 mark.

H/T to David Remnick for bringing this vintage clip to the suface.
