Bruce on Clarence

Altercation directed me to this, Bruce Springstein’s eulogy delivered at the service for Clarence Clemmons. For fans, the whole thing is here.

. . . standing together we were badass, on any given night, on our turf, some of the baddest asses on the planet. We were united, we were strong, we were righteous, we were unmovable, we were funny, we were corny as hell and as serious as death itself. And we were coming to your town to shake you and to wake you up. Together, we told an older, richer story about the possibilities of friendship that transcended those I’d written in my songs and in my music. Clarence carried it in his heart.
