Dang, we hate to hear this happened.

Clarence Clemons, famous saxophonist for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band suffered a stroke on Sunday,June 12, at his home in Florida. Clemons had suffered from several health problems in recent years, including a spinal ailment and a condition that led to double knee surgery, which left him performing from a wheelchair for a time.

In a first update, Clemons was said to be in stable condition and responsive after undergoing two brain surgeries. In a more recent update by a “close friend” has said in regards to Clemons’ health:

“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.”

Clemons has also worked with many other musicians, and recently played on Lady Gaga’s latest single “The Edge of Glory.”

Get Well Soon Clarence!!!
