Thanks, Dave.

I do love that intro to Jesus Was An Only Son. You're right, the music will go on and I'm sure we can trust Bruce to some up with an appropriate way to arrange those great songs that featured Clarence, though some may be tougher to rearrange than others. I loved the Devils & Dust tour, seeing Bruce as a solo artist. Who knows, he may do something like that again, or maybe a smaller scale band. As you say, those big high energy marathon shows may be taking their toll on Bruce, and the others, too. Whatever happens, I'm sure Bruce's standards and commitment to his music will remain high.


Remember the VH1 Storytellers? The intro to Jesus Was An Only Son? Bruce talked about losses all of us face, and that some people come along - and they just can't be replaced. He was referencing a neighbour or someone who had passed away. We do change and move on - when the time is right to do so. I know we will all miss Clarence - but I don't think that should stop the music. May the music will be arranged differently - less sax or something. Regardless, I am sure Bruce can figure something out appropriate --- or - may be it just won't be the E Street Band anymore. The shows have got to be getting on Bruce too. Maybe something a little more stripped down.

Thanks, Linda. What a great idea. I don't think there'd be a dry eye in the house!

I agree 100% with everything you said. I was thinking that the only way they could ever do Jungleland again was to play a recorded version of Clarence's solo and have a spotlight on his spot on the stage. Then we could all cry our eyes out.
