Bruce Springsteen Delivered the Eulogy at Clarence Clemons’ Memorial
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.
