Someone special #BruceSpringsteen #ClarenceClemons

“Clarence” said Norman – “I love you man, but I’ve got to be honest with you. You’re making a huge mistake.”
I had considered that possibility. Maybe it was a huge mistake. There was really no way to predict what would happen. I just knew that when I played with Bruce it felt right. Exactly right…
“Maybe so,” I said. “But like the man said, if you don’t take a chance you haven’t got one.”

Clarence Clemons- Don Reo, Big Man

There are sax solos that are better if shared with someone. There are pieces of lives, actually entire lives, that are better shared with someone special.



Take hold #ThunderRoad #BruceSpringsteen

I think that one of the most important messages of Thunder Road is that it’s a song of self-discovery: if you hear it as a teenager for the first time, while your are having your first troubles at school, or with your parents (or both!), it’s one of those songs that speak to you. Suddenly there’s another human being in the world who gets you, who really GETS you, and it’s a rock’n’roll singer. And he’s telling you that it’s ok to be weird, or not conformed, or not fabulosly hot, you’ll come around it one day. Above all, he tells you that you are not alone in all this. That’s where a lot of us started, with that song and those words. And that’s why you carry this song with you forever.
