Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band member and close friend Clarence Clemons died Sunday after complications from a stroke suffered a week ago. The soulful tenor saxophonist died at a hospital in Palm Beach, FL. He was 69.
A statement released by Springsteen said, "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."
Standing 6'4", Clemons, a former football player, towered over his fellow bandmates and was nicknamed Big Man. Clemons played a central role in the E Street Band, which formed in 1972, and the saxophonist complemented the group's electric guitar and was the driving force in songs such as "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" and "Born to Run."
Born on January 11, 1942 in Norfolk, Virginia, Clarence Anicholas Clemons was the son of a fish market owner and grandson of a Southern Baptist preacher. Although he grew up surrounded by gospel music, he admits he was enamored with rock and roll at a young age. When he was 9 he was given a saxophone as a Christmas gift, and thanks to the influence of jazz musician King Curtis, Clarence switched to the tenor.
The story of how Clemons first met Bruce Springsteen has become somewhat of an E Street Band legend, since Springsteen would introduce "The E Street Shuffle" with a monologue of how they met. They supposedly met for the first time in 1971 when Clemons was involved in the Jersey Shore music scene.
Musician Clarence Clemons, 69, saxophone player in Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, has suffered a stroke, according to various reports.
The news was initially broken by ShowBiz411.com, which said Clemons was "seriously ill" after suffering the stroke at his Florida home.
Clemons began playing with Springsteen in 1971, and had memorable solos on such tunes as "Born to Run," "Thunder Road" and "Badlands."
The musician also enjoyed a solo career, including the 1985 hit single "You're a Friend of Mine," a duet with Jackson Browne. He has worked with other artists such as Ringo Starr, Aretha Franklin and most recently with Lady Gaga on "American Idol."
