The summer of Clarence Clemons and Bruce Springsteen
Some college students backpack across Europe during breaks; Times photographer Cherie Diez followed Bruce Springsteen, Clarence Clemons and the rest of the E Street Band whenever she could scrape up enough money. Clemons’ death last week “was hard and too sudden an end. Springteen has lost his stage soulmate; the E Street Band has lost its heart.” Luckily for Clemons fans, Diez has hundreds of photos of the Big Man, and patiently went through her negatives to create a look back at his shows. Take a look at her nostalgic slideshow.
