The Change Was Made Uptown When The Big Man Joined...


....The Band.

Good-bye Clarence. We, and especially littler e., will miss you.

Greg Mitchell explains how the Big Man kept Scooter from being turned to mince-meat in Sing-Sing prison, post-Folsom, but pre-Run, in 1972.

Three musicians changed my perspective on music. A rock and Roll Star, and two saxophonists.
Buddy Holly
King Curtis
Clarence Clemons. RIP Clarence

Gary - I'm pretty sure King Curtis was the guy that changed it all for Mr. Clemons.

By the way, his nephew Jake is killer on sax too, and plays a lot with another of my favourites, Glen Hansard.
