In Memoriam - Clarence Clemons - 1942-2011.
I find it difficult to express my feelings on the passing of Clarence Clemons. On the one hand, it is a realization that I will no longer be able to hear him perform the Jungleland solo live. On the other hand, there are many people who have taken up music (if not the Saxophone specifically) because they were inspired to do so listening to his playing. These people will carry on and reach new musical heights that they would never have achieved had it not been for his influence. This is the real legacy of a great musician. Thank you Clarence, not only for the joy your music has brought us, but also for the inspiration it has provided for others to follow in your footsteps.
|Here is the Bruce Springsteen Eulogy for the "Big Man "|
My name is Bill Gianopoulos. I live in Ashland Massachusetts, which is a small town about 25 miles west of Boston. The route of the Boston Marathon passes less than a block north of where I live.
Of course, being from this area, I am a huge Super Bowl Champion
New England Patriots,
Boston Red Sox and
fan! I also am a big follower of Formula 1TM Automobile racing.
I am a huge Bruce Springsteen fan, and also enjoy brewing beer at IncrediBREW in Nashua, NH.
My "real" job is working for a large corporation headquartered in the Boston area (that would rather I did not mention them here) as an IT Security Engineer. I also hold a CISSP certification from (ISC)2.
In my spare time (whenever that is) I also do some Mozilla hacking, particularly in the area of trying to improve MathML support. I have also written a Firefox extension to permit FTP Uploads.
Also available on this site are some Linux, Windows and Android testing builds of Firefox that contain not yet landed patches which resolve various issues.
