Born to run

Sad to hear the news of Clarence Clemons' death this morning. Clarence was the lungs of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band and gave the Boss one of his signature sounds. I will always remember the first time I heard Born to Run and the sheer exuberance of the sax playing. The rapport between Springsteen and Clemons was part of the magic of the band and he exuded a street menace along with great playing. Thanks Clarence for so many great sax riffs.
