Late Springsteen Saxophonist Clarence Clemons Gets His Own Day In NJ
“The Big Man” officially has his own day in New Jersey.
Clarence Clemons Day has been set for Jan. 11, Clemons’ birthday, wire services reported.
Clemons died of heart complications as a result of a stroke in 2011. He was 69.
Gov. Christie, an avid Springsteen fan, has been to over 130+ Springsteen shows, and ordered the flags to be flown at half-staff at the time of Clemon’s death.
The resolution to give the big-time saxophone player his own day was proposed by New Jersey Senator Jennifer Beck.
“The New Jersey Shore would not be the same without the music of Bruce Spingsteen’s E- Street Band,” Beck said, “and the E-Street Band would not have been the same without the sound of a saxophone played by Clarence Clemons.”
