The Political Musical Pulse – June 19, 2011 (The Clarence Clemons Edition)

Jun 19 2011 Published by under Uncategorized

Today is Father’s Day. And a father passed away yesterday. For those of you that don’t know, Clarence Clemons passed away Saturday evening. He was of course most famous as the saxophone playing sidekick to Bruce Springsteen. He was the heart and soul of the E Street Band. So today’s music is a number of Clarence’s most interesting moments. Not all of them took place as a member of the E Street Band. RIP Big Man.

Bruce Springsteen Introduces Clarence Clemons

And last but not least, this is a song Bruce Springsteen wrote for his personal assistant Terry Mcgovern when he died. The same sentiment in the song could be said about Clarence Clemons as well.
