hollywoodnews.com: The legendary Clarence Clemons, long-time saxophonist with Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, died today in the wake of a June 12th stroke. Clemons underwent two surgeries to address stroke-related complications in the days since he fell ill, but was ultimately unable to recover.

Said The Boss in a statement about Clemons’ death, “Clarence lived a wonderful life. He carried within him a love of people that made them love him. He created a wondrous and extended family. He loved the saxophone, loved our fans and gave everything he had every night he stepped on stage…His loss is immeasurable and we are honored and thankful to have known him and had the opportunity to stand beside him for nearly forty years.”

Clemons was a contributor on Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” album and performed with her during last month’s “American Idol” finale.
