We lost a great player on the 18th of June, Clarence Clemons.  Although best known for his work with Bruce Springstein as a member of the E Street Band, Clarence also had quite the resume.  He had played with Aretha Franklin, Jackson Brown, the Grateful Dead, the Ringo Starr All-Star Band among others and had a vibrant solo career.  His sax playing will long be heard on many classics of the 70’s 80’s and beyond.  The attached is an appearnce he made on David Letterman.  Note the drummer, Steve Gadd.  The video also contains the interview with Dave.

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.
