Clarence Clemons / Bruce Springsteen / E Street Band Award
Beautiful award issued to Clarence Clemons for European sales in excess of 1 million units (platinum) for “The Rising”.
Reported inspiration for “The Rising”…
The Rising, which was released on July 20th, 2002, marked Springsteen’s first new album in seven years, was inspired by a fan who in the days after 9/11 pulled up next to Springsteen in his car, rolled down his window and stated simply: “We need you now.”
Dual acrylic panels showing some minor scuffing. This Award was discovered abandoned in an Ohio storage facility, several years after Clarence’s passing, with other personal possessions.
A large spectrum of guitar picks from the collection of Chance Martin, Johnny Cash’s longtime manager and confidant. Chance would have acquired the majority of these picks from the artists. With exception of one pick, they are adhered to the backboard. The one removed had a very easy removable substance on the reverse, which did not effect the appearance of the pick. The picks will not be removed, but sold as is.
