Sad news to report that E STREET BAND sax player CLARENCE "THE BIG MAN" CLEMONS has died from complications of a stroke that he suffered earlier this past week, (NET NEWS 6/13).
However, just following the stroke, CLEMONS had shown improvement, but had a long way to go according to BRUCE SPRINGTEEN (NET NEWS 6/14).
CLEMONS was the most identifiable member of the E STREET BAND other than SPRINGSTEEN himself, and his unique playing style made some of SPRINGSTEENS' classics like "BORN TO RUN," "THUNDER ROAD," "TENTH AVENUE FREEZE-OUT," "DANCING IN THE DARK," the standout performances that made them classics.
And, just recently CLEMONS had played with LADY GAGA on the season finale of "AMERICAN IDOL."
