Hard to believe Clarence Clemons is gone. The New Jersey Star-Ledger has a beautiful obituary:
“She’s The One” may not include Clemons’ most famous sax solo, but damn: this is rock and roll. This is the song that got me to love the E Street Band. A college friend called it “the best psych-up music of all time.” In my novel Jericho Point, it’s the song that’s playing as the story ends.
The video was shot at Crystal Palace stadium in London. I’m somewhere in the crowd on the field, with the Husband and friends from New Jersey. It was an amazing concert, and when the band broke into this song I almost lifted off the ground.
There’s a moment toward the end of the video where Clemons’ saxophone gleams in the light. Shine on, Big Man.
