    No shit! I have a forty-five record insert hanging on a chain on my bookshelf, my son asked what it was, i told him it was for forty-fives, he said "you mean the gun?", after a pause to feel the age i calmly explained that it was to play forty-five records....

    Can't believe the big guy is gone. I guess they needed a kick ass sax player upstairs.

    Got a friend in Indiana who brother got married again to a chick half his age and she bore him a son, his fourth, the new (again), dad is 48 and his bride is 24. I told my friend that she should tell her brother that when the kid gets old enough, father and son can both eat cheap at Denny's, the son could use a student discount and dad could get the senior citizen's discount at the same time!
    By the way 41 here

    This is very sad news as I am a huge Springsteen fan and Clarence was a big part of that. Jungleland is one of my favorite songs of all time and actually listening to it right now as a tribute. Clarence's sax solo in this song is epic. Our hearts go out to his family and all of his friends. Your visionary and genious will truly be missed Big Man.

    My only Springteen & E Street Band concert was @ UVM late Fall 1978.
    It's a lasting memory & the whole band's performance sparked my enthusiasm for seeing, listening & collecting music.
    I have all the group's vinyl, some played so much I needed to buy another & CD collections etc.
    My favorite being the pic below. RIP to Clarence Clemons!

    The Big Man will be sadly missed, I am with ya man, God Rest his soul. He will be forever missed as a great talent to the E Street Band.

    I have seen "the Boss" and the E Street Band many times. My first time was in Lenox Mass in 1977 I was hooked.

    A BOSS Fan forever.
