Clarence Clemons, one of the great saxophonists of the classic rock era, has died of complications from a stroke. His work with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band will live for as long as popular music exists, yes, especially that solo on Born To Run. But not only that. Clemons helped to shape and define the 'New Jersey' sound, which in and of itself shaped rock music for two decades. Clarence Clemons loved a big show and a big crowd, but if he played for forty people he played just as hard. The Big Man entertained. - Jobe

Rest. You are going to sleep now.
When you awaken you shall be far away.
You will dream of flying,
whole landscapes will pass beneath you.
Rest.You will be cuddled soft in cool, white breezes,
then you will become the breeze itself.
You are now summer, and the children are all grown,
and you will ease away through an open window.
James Lee Jobe
