Clarence Clemons, Springsteen’s sax man, suffers stroke


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Our thoughts go out to beloved saxophonist “Big Man” Clarence Clemons, who has been deemed “seriously ill” after suffering a stroke in his Florida home on Sunday.

Clemons, 69, was recovering from knee-replacement and spinal surgeries, but still stayed very busy as of late. The gifted musician recently appeared on the “American Idol” season finale, and can be heard on Lady Gaga’s latest album, “Born This Way.”

Clemons had told the media that he hoped Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, of which he is a founding member, would be back on tour next year. But for now, we’re just praying for “Big Man’s” health, and a speedy recovery for this rock and roll hall of famer.
