First Danny and now Clarence. Truly the end to one of the greatest Rock and Roll bands of all time. A RnR era has also ended. I'll never forget being 11 years old and seeing the cover to the newly released "Born to Run" and completely taken in by the iconic image of Bruce and Clarence. I was hooked and became a die-hard Tramp ever since. Their friendship represented what could be...especially when Bruce slid across the stage at the end of "Jungleland" and he and Clarence embraced in their famous soul kiss.
I was thinking of that exact scene when I posted last night
He was the coolest man on the planet. I saw them play in 2008 and he had what looked like a throne on stage. It was awesom, as was he. I knew I was cooler just for being in the same room with him, as were the other 18k people in the room.
