Bruce Springsteen remembers his friend Clarence Clemons

Forgive the Boss if he needed a little extra time to form his thoughts on the death of E Street saxophonist Clarence Clemons. Bruce Springsteen posted this statement on his website over the weekend:

"Clarence lived a wonderful life. He carried within him a love of people that made them love him. He created a wondrous and extended family. He loved the saxophone, loved our fans and gave everything he had every night he stepped on stage. His loss is immeasurable and we are honored and thankful to have known him and had the opportunity to stand beside him for nearly forty years. He was my great friend, my partner, and with Clarence at my side, my band and I were able to tell a story far deeper than those simply contained in our music. His life, his memory, and his love will live on in that story and in our band."
