Jimmy Buffett Honors Clarence Clemons

Party-all-night crooner Jimmy Buffett gave his legions of Parrotheads many of the hits they had come to hear, but also offered up a few choice covers, including a tribute to the late, great Clarence Clemons, who died last week from stroke complications.

True, you could argue his song of choice, "Glory Days" probably fit into Buffett's own musical philosophy a bit more than it did provide a fitting homage to the irreplaceable sax player in Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, but the effort was made, anyway. And for a man known to spend much of his time wasted away, we guess that has to count for something.

Later in the gig, Buffett further attempted to connect with the locals, presenting an image of tourist-cheesesteak nervecenter Geno's as a backdrop to "Cheeseburger in Paradise," but even that choice was in dispute. Geez, you mean $157 bucks a ticket doesn't get you a crackerjack research team?
