21 Great Sax Moments in Rock
On June 18, E Street Band saxophonist (and Bruce Springsteen’s musical partner of nearly 40 years) Clarence Clemons died due to complications from a stroke he had suffered earlier in the week.
The beloved Big Man may be gone, but as Springsteen expressed in a statement issued after Clemons’ death, “his life, his memory, and his love will live on” in the music he so joyfully helped to create. Here we honor some of that music, as well as the instrument he helped to popularize, in our list of 21 super sax moments in popular music.—Jeff Royer
