Originally shot as a vertical image, this one crops so mush better as a horizontal image. This has been in my gallery for a few years so it only makes sense to feature it as part of the Darkness Editions. If you are following the fashion on this page you will note, no tie, jacket is most likely thrown on Max's drum stand and the vest is still present. Oh and then there is that Fender guitar!

Often asked if I am aware of which song was being performed when an image was taken, this is one of those rare times when I am 100 % sure. Adam Raised a Cain, first heard on the Darkness album and first performed in 1978.

This image of Bruce Springsteen has never been offered for sale until now. In fact, this image, taken in 1978 has never been printed and was only scanned recently to offer it to you in celebration of this 40th Anniversary.

Impressively sized at 16" X 24," Rock Photographer Jim Shive calls this image  "ADAM RAISED A CAIN as Bruce stands on stage raising his hads as he sings the chorus....

To ensure value of this image for you — the Collector — and your heirs of future Bruce fans, only 100 copies of this affordable image in this size are being made available.

We have all seen Bruce go thru many fashions over the years, from T- shirt, beard and jeans then back to T- shirt and jeans on Broadway.  In between these years and just after Born to Run he started to dress up...but as we all also know, that jacket, tie and vest would not stay on him all night. Here I assume is Bruce early in the show still fully dressed. From the original 1978 Darkness tour.

Clarence "Big Man" Clemons.

This image has been in my collection in the past but had been removed for a few years because of a very long & painful lawsuit. But now it's back and in 2 editions and sizes, Limited Edition and Open Edition. 

Most times I had photographed Clarence, it was either with Bruce or with the band, however to capture Big Man up front and center & Bruce in background doing his flamingo dance just makes this image special shows the special relationship the two of them had together on stage. Taken during the Darkness tour in 1978, this is one of those images that was not able to be printed in 1978, but with digital technology the film scan has brought the past back for your viewing pleasure.

Over the years, I have had the immense pleasure of being able to get up close and personal with my camera, photographing Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band. In particular, it was especially unique fun to be in the presence of "Big Man" Clarence Clemons and a presence he was. BIG in stature, BIG in sound, BIG in personality, Clarence rocked the lens of my camera time and again, leaving me with indelible memories and images. 

Back in 2011 I'd been honored to have my photographs appear in Rolling Stone magazine in Memoriam of Clarence. So, to remember this iconic musician who belongs not only to the the E Street Band  but to the world, I offer this rare image created on the original Darkness tour.

The Minister of Soul, The Secretary of the Brotherhood, The One, The Only, Clarence "Big Man" Clemons.
