    ...Showbiz 411's Roger Friedman reported last night that Clemons "is said to be seriously ill after a stroke at his home in Florida."

    Friedman notes that Clemons has had health problems in the past, including having both knees replaced, but "this situation, as described to me this evening, sounds pretty dire. I am told that members of the E Street Band were advised to get down to Florida as soon as possible."...

    Clarence Clemons Reportedly Showing Signs of Recovery
    Playing with Lady Gaga 'makes me feel a lot better,' Clemons told Rolling Stone a few months ago

    While we wait for an official statement about Clarence Clemons' condition following his stroke, good news has been trickling in. A "close friend" of the E Street Band saxophonist recently told the Springsteen fanzine Backstreets that his condition is improving. "Yesterday, it did not look good at all," the source said. "Today . . . miracles are happening. His vital signs are improving. He's responsive. His eyes are welling up when we're talking to him. He was paralyzed on his left side, but now he's squeezing with his left hand. This is the best news we've heard since [the stroke] happened it's nothing short of miraculous. The next five days will still be critical. But he's a fighter."...


    Let's pray the good news continues.

    In an interview he did shortly before his stroke he said he'd be very happy to tour with Lady Gaga. He plays on her latest album.

    I knew he'd had a stroke, so my heart just sank when I saw his name here.

    Phenomenal musician. Extraordinary showman. Obvious connection with Springsteen on stage live.

    One of my favorite memories of the 1980s: Springsteen with Clemens & Co. in Jersey!

    Thanks for starting this thread. This hit me hard as I am a huge Bruce and E-Street fan (saw them for the first time in 1978) and I've been lucky to see them live several more times. I'm also part Jersey girl as we have a family house about 20 miles south of Asbury Park. He and Danny Federici are once again together but its a sad, sad day. This video is great quality and pretty much shows just why Clarence will always be the BIG MAN. Rest in Peace, Clarence.
