So Long, Big Man

This is how we'll remember Clarence Clemmons:

It's a screenshot from this concert video, taken in Passaic, New Jersey, in 1978. They're playing "Jungleland", a song that featured Clemmons' saxophone playing a sad line in a song about the trials of life. His sax and his stage presence were so central to the E Street Band that it's hard to imagine it without him.
