This past summer, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie officially declared January 11 to be Clarence Clemons day in New Jersey. The New York Times described this act as, "proof that in New Jersey the members of Bruce Springsteen’s band are folk heroes akin to knights of the round table." Personally, this makes me all the more proud to be from New Jersey.
The 11th was Clarence's birthday, and in conjunction with the first ever Clarence Clemons day, Backstreets.com writer Shawn Poole launched a petition to get Clarence Clemons on a stamp. The petition ends on January 10, and they are looking to collect 50,000 signatures. If you would like to support the petition, head over to the following website to sign the petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/469/114/550/petition-to-honor-clarence-big-man-clemons-with-a-us-postage-stamp/
