Remembering the Big Man…

TheBigMan

CloudKid lost a friend this week with the passing of sax legend, Clarence Clemons.  The “Big Man” died last week after complications from a stroke. He is best know for his rockin’ (yet smokey) sax-contribution to Bruce Springsteen’s E-Street Band, and he is prominently featured in CloudKid’s  musical playlist, Saxy Time. We think Born to Run best illustrates his brilliance.

NPR recently featured a story about the life of Clarence and the history of the sax. Whether or not you’re a true Saxy Time fiend, this one should not be missed. You can listen to the On Point segment here.

CloudKid asks that you take a moment of silence for one of the most influential horns in history.
