(hennemusic) Family and friends gathered for a private memorial service in Palm Beach, Florida on Tuesday to say goodbye to Clarence Clemons.

The Palm Beach Daily News reports Bruce Springsteen, playing solo, offered a softened, almost tender version of "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out," the song that recalls his first meeting with Clemons in an Asbury Park bar on a snowy day.

Bruce then went on to eulogize his late friend breaking down only once, when describing that first meeting as a man not only big in stature, but big in heart and spirit. He said Clemons was hardly the uncomplicated man many thought him to be. "Clarence was a man of unconditional love, but his love came with a lot of conditions," he said, drawing chuckles and murmurs of agreement from many in the assemblage. "He was a complex guy an ongoing project. But when you were in his presence, it was like being in a sovereign nation." more on this story
