R.I.P. Clarence Clemons

I had the privledge and honor of meeting and photographing Clarence Clemons in 2009. He was a gentle giant...soft spoken, good humored, and truly enjoyed meeting his fans. He was always smiling and loved to hear the stories the people told him regarding the first time they saw him in concert or hearing him on their first Bruce album/CD.

His sax solos touched my soul, especially the one on Jungleland. I'd close my eyes and let the emotions take over. Even today, his solo still has the same effect on me. He was amazing. He was gifted.

You will be missed, Clarence. May you rest now.
