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.”
