Drop the Needle and Pray: Mourning Clarence Clemons, 1942 - 2011. David Masciotra. PopMatters.
Because the Big Man was the Big Man and because nobody Masciotra's like David Masciotra himself.
"In his memoir, he talks about how the first time he met Bruce Springsteen, they “fell in love” and after playing one song together, they knew that “this is it”. Whether or not Clarence Clemons was the best saxophone player in rock music is not for me to judge. There is no doubt, however, that Clarence Clemons was the best saxophone player for Bruce Springsteen."
