    I read about his stroke last week but the reports at the time didn't make it sound that bad. :(

    Wow. I also read about the stroke, but this is still surprising.

    RIP Big Man.

    RIP Big Man.

    Saw them live 11 times over the years. One of the greatest live bands ever.

    Isn't it odd that that the last video he was in was about death?

    Wow, eleven times! I've seen them only once, but it was once of the best performances I've seen.

    RIP, Big Man.

    Max Weinberg's manager was a client of my uncle. Was able to get tickets whenever they were in NY or NJ. Also saw them twice while in college upstate NY.


    Did my 12 mile bike ride to Clarence's greatest hits this morning.

    Sad news. My father is a huge fan of the band and I spent many a day rocking to the Big Man's sax. RIP Clarence.

    I was shocked to hear he had a stroke and was extremely sad to hear he died a few days after. The E Street Band is my favorite out of them all, it's not going to be the same with out him.

    So sad - you'd hope the whole gang would all grow really old together...

    Saw Bruce and the ESB back on the 80's - loved 'em - best shows ever....
