Clarence Clemons, the oldest member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, is in hospital after suffering a stroke. Known as the Big Man, Clemons is said to be seriously ill in a Florida hospital after suffering the stroke on June 12.
Clemons has been a part of E Street Band for 3 decades. Bruce Springsteen always introduces the 'Big Man' last when introducing the band as a sign of respect. Saxophonist Clemons, 69, recently performed on Lady GaGa's album "Born This Way".
Clemons has released several solo albums and appeared in several movies including Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.
According to Clemons is in "responsive and in stable condition." He is said to be paralyzed on the left side of his body.
Members of E Street Band have been advised to get to the Florida hospital where Clemons is being treated as quickly as possible.
Clemons lives in Florida when not working. Each year he hosts a golf and tennis tournament, The Classic, to benefit the children at Home Safe in South Florida. To date the fund raiser has raised over $1.4 dollars.
