The Big Man is Gone (January 11, 1942 – June 18, 2011)

Bruce Springsteen said the late E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons loved their fans and gave everything he had every night on stage.

"Clarence lived a wonderful life," Springsteen said on his Web site following Saturday's news that the 69-year-old Clemons died following complications from a stroke he suffered June 12. (From B.J. Hammerstein, Detroit Free Press.)
