You and Springsteen gave my teen years a vibrancy I never knew could exist. There was no such thing as a mundane Monday, even stepping onto a bus and heading for work was a pulsating experience thanks to you two. There was fire in my feet and purpose in my stride. You banished all those foreboding dark city nights and shadowed alleyways pierced by neon, and turned them into something magical, something breathtaking.
Your music gave life a rhythm, a poetry, you showed us ordinary folks that our lives were rock opera's of the grandest order.
Rest in Peace Clarence Clemons. You life changer you.
