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.
BPI Award issued to Clarence Clemons of the E Street Band for 100,000 units sold of “The River” in 1981. Record awards issued to the artist seldom surface. Additionally this Award reflects the initial release of the album with only 100,000 units sold. Much plexiglass scratches.
