Longtime E Street Band guitarist ‘Little’ Steven Van Zandt will pay tribute to his fallen bandmate Clarence Clemons on this weekend’s edition of ‘Little Steven’s Underground Garage.’

Van Zandt has been in Norway filming his parts for a new Norwegian TV series and mourning the loss of two other friends – longtime industry figure Steve Popovich and original Asbury Juke keyboardist Kevin Kavanaugh. Van Zandt broke from his activities in Norway to come back to the United States for the Clemons funeral on Tuesday.

An email sent to ‘Underground Garage’ affiliates said “Coming home yesterday… gave Steven his first opportunity to reflect on all that has happened. He did start thinking about creating an ‘Underground Garage’ tribute show for Clarence somewhere down the line, when he was ready to tackle such an emotional project.  But after further introspection throughout the night Steven came to the conclusion that NOW is the time for a Clarence tribute show.”

The email goes on to say that Van Zandt is in the process of “selecting the right songs” and “coming up with the right words to honor ‘The Big Man.’”

Little Steven commented further on the ‘Underground Garage’ website by saying, “as most of you know by now, we lost Clarence Clemons a few days ago. The Rock and Roll world lost an irreplaceable performer. The E Street Band lost its second member. And I lost another lifelong friend. So this week in the ‘Underground Garage’ we are changing our format to do a tribute to Clarence, his solo work with The Red Bank Rockers, his acting roles, and of course his unforgettable work with the E Street Band.”

Fans can hear the special tribute to Clemons on this weekend’s edition of ‘Underground Garage.’
