Bruce Springsteen Plans Meeting With E Street Band To Discuss Future
With rumors of an imminent new album from Bruce Springsteen continuing to circulate, it has been reported that he will get together with the surviving members of the E Street Band to discuss the future of the group following the June death of longtime saxophonist Clarence Clemons.
E Street guitarist Steven Van Zandt told members of the press that they plan to meet with Bruce in the next couple of weeks to figure things out. As he had said in earlier comments, the loss of Clemons is a “void we will never replace.”
But Van Zandt feels like they’ll carry on and continue to make music together, because “that’s what we do.”
Paying tribute to Clemons on his radio show earlier this year, Little Steven called Clarence an “irreplaceable performer” and a “lifelong friend and brother” who brought a “strong featured presence” to the E Street Band.
