Music: Clarence Clemons, R.I.P.

Clarence Clemons' death is a real loss.  Yes, Bruce wore out for me a bit with his political sermons, and his cheap shot at the cops in "41 Shots."  But there's no denying his and his bandmates' genius.  Listen to their best song, "Drive All Night," on the The River album, with Clemons' deep sax work, if you want to be changed forever.  (Here's a good but slightly inferior live version.)  R.I.P.
