    This ruined my day. The Big Man was one of a kind.

    RIP to a legend. The E Street Band just lost a big part of its soul.

    Fuck. Makes no sense, but feels like a member of my family died.

    We had plans to watch a rom-com on cable with Mrs. W, but she said that I could be alone with the iTouch for the next few hours.

    Gonna start with the Thundercrack bootleg -- some great work there..

    RIP Big Man.

    As someone said on the other thread, when they brought out the chair for him on stage, it was not a good sign...

    Very sad...

    Sad, sad, sad. That obit failed to mention survivors. Did he have family?

    His music will live on forever. You provided me with a lot of great times, Big Man.

    Four sons, current wife, plus four wives he's divorced from.
    Don't know about siblings or parents.
    That info is from the NY Times obit, which neglects to mention his son Nick, who is a musician in his own right.
