He was the Big Man
His heart was heard through his horn
Clarence “The Big Man” Clemons was, in my mind,
the heart and soul behind the E-Street Band. When I
was just a child, I heard “Born to Run” and it was
Clarence’s solo in that tune, that I knew I wanted to
play the saxophone. It is a short solo, but man,
it hit me. Clarence’s solos were always
fantastic, his sound, his passion, his tone and his heart
were always first class. He truly loved what he
was doing. I am sure just about everyone
has heard this, but this is what started it for me,
“Born to Run”

That entire album is just incredible!
