Bruce Springsteen is on tour. Shocking I know. They playing a show in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Bruce Springsteen plays “Jungleland” for the first time since the death of Clarence Clemons. Clarence had died a year earlier. You will get chills. Unless you are dead inside.

Bruce dedicates the song to Clemons. Jake, Clarence’s nephew, earns rapturous applause after playing the famous saxophone solo.

Bruce wrote this song when he was 23 years old. Holy Fucking Balls.

Bruce gave a eulogy at the funeral. This is how it ended:

I’m gonna leave you today with a quote from the Big Man himself, which he shared on the plane ride home from Buffalo, the last show of the last tour. As we celebrated in the front cabin congratulating one another and telling tales of the many epic shows, rocking nights and good times we’d shared, “C” sat quietly, taking it all in, then he raised his glass, smiled and said to all gathered, “This could be the start of something big.”

Love you, “C”.
