In honor of Clarence Clemons, who sadly passed away this weekend, we've compiled this tribute playlist featuring a few songs from every concert in the Vault on which the Big Man appears. Besides a number of sets with Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band from between 1973 and 1988, that also includes performances with his Red Bank Rockers in 1983, songs from a 1987 Legendary Ladies of Rock concert that included The Big Man in the house band, and the Grateful Dead's 1988 New Year's Eve show when Clarence sat in for a few numbers.
No one has memorialized Clarence better than The Boss himself:
"Clarence lived a wonderful life. He carried within him a love of people that made them love him. He created a wondrous and extended family. He loved the saxophone, loved our fans and gave everything he had every night he stepped on stage. His loss is immeasurable and we are honored and thankful to have known him and had the opportunity to stand beside him for nearly forty years. He was my great friend, my partner, and with Clarence at my side, my band and I were able to tell a story far deeper than those simply contained in our music. His life, his memory, and his love will live on in that story and in our band."
There isn't much to say beyond that, so we'll let Clarence's sax do the talking.
RIP, Big Man. You'll be missed.
