Very sad to hear. Rest in peace Big Man. You were a unique player with a big heart and an even bigger sound!

So sad. He had such a great sound and a great influence on tenor as a part of a classic rock sound.

Ditto to the posts above. This really bummed me out. He was certainly one of the influences in my life and I am glad I got to see and meet him. RIP Clarence.

I'm very saddened by the news of Clarence's passing.
So much to live for.

Our band did Born to Run, 10th Ave. Freeze Out and Spirit In The Night

Wow. How sad. He rented my horn once for a recording, though I never did get to meet him. I still was proud and felt a connection.

I played a show and we covered "Born To Run". We nailed it and the crowd went wild. I'll never forget that. He was very inspiring, and to try to play his part was very moving to me.

What a loss.

The Man who inspired me to pick up the saxophone. The soundtrack to my youth growing up at the Jersey Shore, a huge influence on my playing. 7 years to the day I lost my father...the largest influence on my life....weird.

Rest In Peace Clarence, you touched many lives. You will be missed.

His giant sound will always live on and continue to be be an inspiration for the world. In that way he is truly immortal.

His statement at 5:38 on Letterman says it all.

R.I.P.

I think many of us owe to him his incredible music and his impulse for the saxophone. "Dead is the one who is forgotten". He will live forever.
