Fans of the late Clarence Clemons are helping to honor the late, great “Big Man” in a big way.

E Street Band saxophone player Clarence Clemons passed away earlier this year, but he leaves behind a large legacy that his fans continue to carry on.

Little Kids Rock is announcing that through the sale of special bracelets, they have raised 12 thousand 500 dollars to help out underprivileged kids have access to music lessons and instruments. Executive Director David Wish says that thanks to the generosity of fans, more than 750 kids in communities across the country will be able to learn how to play a musical instrument when school gets back in session this fall.

When Clarence was alive, he helped to bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars allowing thousands of kids the opportunity to be able to create music that they may not have been able to otherwise. I know learning how to play the guitar gave me a creative outlet that I’ve carried with me for the last 20 plus years. I remember trying to plunk out songs on my own down in the basement on my dad’s old Gibson 12 string acoustic. We weren’t rich growing up, but I will never, ever forget the day I opened my very own acoustic guitar. It meant the world to me and I still have it.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, by the way just played their longest show ever. Their marathon concert last night in Helsinki, Finland clocked in at four hours and six minutes. You can catch them in concert at the Xcel Energy Center November 11. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Saturday.
