Clarence Clemons Suffers a Stroke (Video with Gaga on Idol)

Here’s some really sad news.  Clarence Clemons, famed saxophonist for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band suffered a serious stroke last night.

He’s in stable condition, but sadly, after a few brain surgeries, he’s reportedly paralyzed on the left side of his body. Prayers and thoughts go out to Clarence and his family and friends.  I’ve seen the E Street Band a few times in concert–Clarence was the heart and soul of the band in my opiniion.

Only last month, Clarence performed “Edge of Glory” with Lady Gaga on the American Idol finale.  If his condition is as serious as reported, this performance is likely his last public appearance.  Watch below.
