Goddammit. This guy was the beating heart of my favorite movie. It saddens me to think about what else he might have created, how he might have further solidified his status as one of the greats, but I take comfort in what he left behind.
You see…this is how it works. Omar reads my last post and then emails me saying, I don’t see songs from the new album streaming at any of the obvious places on the web. To which I said, You’re right. I took his simple but effective suggestion and walla…
You can now stream every song from Aide Memoire in its entirety on YouTube starting with Track 1 above. I left out “Wooly Mammoths” since there’s already a video for that song.

Recent photo of a little boy visiting the White House. He wanted to feel Obama’s hair because he wanted to know if the President’s hair felt just like his. Obama obliged. Priceless.
I love this almost as much as the pic of him with Sasha in the bumper car.
Love love love this.

I love this guy’s style. I get a huge Betty Draper vibe from Sue, although I’m pretty sure that, despite being a drawing, she is emoting more genuinely than January Jones ever has.
“Clarence lived a wonderful life. He carried within him a love of people that made them love him. He created a wondrous and extended family. He loved the saxophone, loved our fans and gave everything he had every night he stepped on stage. His loss is immeasurable and we are honored and thankful to have known him and had the opportunity to stand beside him for nearly forty years. He was my great friend, my partner, and with Clarence at my side, my band and I were able to tell a story far deeper than those simply contained in our music. His life, his memory, and his love will live on in that story and in our band.” - Bruce Springsteen

Mr. Clemons’s first encounter with Mr. Springsteen has become E Street Band lore. In most tellings, a lightning storm was rolling through Asbury Park one night in 1971 while Mr. Springsteen was playing a gig there. As Mr. Clemons entered the bar, the wind blew the door off its hinges, and Mr. Springsteen was startled by the towering shadow at the door. Then Mr. Clemons invited himself onstage to play along, and they clicked.
"I swear I will never forget that moment," Mr. Clemons later recalled in an interview. "I felt like I was supposed to be there. It was a magical moment. He looked at me, and I looked at him, and we fell in love. And that’s still there."
