Clemons recently underwent two brain surgeries after suffering a “serious stroke” on June 12.

Clemons had played sax in Springsteen’s E Street Band on and off since the band was founded in 1972.(CNN)

Longtime friend and band leader Bruce Springsteen memorialized Clemons’ in a statement issued tonight…“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.

He was my great friend, my partner, and with Clarence at my side, my band and I were able to tell a story far deeper than those simply contained in our music. His life, his memory, and his love will live on in that story and in our band.”(Source)

For four decades we were all blessed to be able to witness and hear the “Big Man” make music that basically rocked!!!!..and made you want to rock with him.
