Big Love for the Big Man – Get Well Soon, Clarence

The Big Man, Clarence Clemons, and Bruce, circa 1974.

My heart is breaking.

News out tonight that Clarence Clemons, the E Street Band member affectionately known as “The Big Man” and Bruce’s right hand man, has suffered a stroke at his home in Florida and is in serious condition.

Bruce and E Street are a huge, huge part of my musical landscape, and I can’t possibly imagine an E Street without Clarence.

Get well soon, Big Man.  We need you.

UPDATE Noon, June 13:  Backstreets.com is reporting some hopeful news this morning, that Clarence is responsive and “vital signs are improving” since yesterday.  Keep up the good thoughts for him!
