I never cared much for his voice but he plays so many instruments that I do admire him for that.
Plus he's over 60 and still going strong!

I've seen him play with Clarence, I'll just have to settle for Jake Clemons on Friday night.

On February 11, 2012, Springsteen announced that Jake Clemons, the nephew of Clarence Clemons, would join the E Street Band as the group's new saxophonist.

Well I just got home from the show and it was amazing! He's like 600 years old and played for 4 solid straight hours. Close your eyes and jake clemons sounded exactly like clarence. It was EPIC!!!!

I've always had an aversion to celebrities who give themselves cute names. The "Boss"?

Gag.

He did have one song I liked though, but it never made the radio around these parts.
