Bruce Springsteen, Clarence Clemons

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN delivered the eulogy at CLARENCE CLEMONS’ memorial ceremony in Palm Beach, Florida, yesterday.  Clarence was the saxophonist in The Boss’ E STREET BAND.

Bruce said, quote, “Clarence was a man of unconditional love, but his love came with a lot of conditions.  He was a complex guy . . . an ongoing project.  But when you were in his presence, it was like being in a sovereign nation.”

Bruce also performed a solo version of “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out”, the song he wrote about first meeting Clarence in Asbury Park over 40 years ago. 

The E Street Band also performed at the ceremony, as did JACKSON BROWNE.  

Clarence’s widow Victoria and three of his four ex-wives were among the mourners.

Victoria said that Clarence had asked her to scatter his ashes at a special spot in Hawaii and to do so with “all of the special women in his life” . . . including his previous wives.  And she said she would do it.
