Fellow Musicians Singing Praises For Clarence Clemons
Some of music’s biggest names are remembering one of the biggest personalities to ever pick up a saxophone. Here’s what they had to say.
Following the news of Clarence Clemons’ passing, NME.com said U2 front man Bono stopped their 360 concert on Saturday in Anaheim to ask their fans to think about Clemons, The E Street Band and Bruce Springsteen. He also said that Clemons “carried music” through his lifetime.
Bryan Adams praised Clemons and his musical achievements via Twitter. Slash also took to his Twitter account to share his feelings about Clemons saying, he was “one of the finest musicians/people” in the business.
The comments come on the heels of Bruce Springsteen’s statement regarding Clemons’ death. The Boss said via the E Street Band website that the loss of Clarence was “immeasurable” 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. Springsteen adds that Clemons “was a great friend and partner.”
His death comes six days after suffering a severe stroke at his home in Florida.
