Clarence Clemons Suffers Stroke

Quote:
Rolling Stone can confirm reports that Clarence Clemons has had a stroke. The news broke this evening at 411.com, which reported that Clemons is "seriously ill after a stroke at his home in Florida." We have no information on the severity of the stroke, but we have independently confirmed that the E Street Band saxophonist has suffered a stroke.

from Backstreets...

Quote:
CLARENCE CLEMONS FIGHTS BACK
We didn't want to believe it when we heard the news yesterday, but Backstreets has confirmed through independent sources that Clarence Clemons has suffered a massive stroke. After two subsequent brain surgeries at a Florida hospital, the good news is that Clarence is currently responsive and in stable condition, though still in a fight for his life. "If anyone can pull off the miracle, it's him," says a close friend. "He's fought back from so much before."
hold on big man...

Thank God, at least he's responsive. All my wishes and prayers to the big man. Listened to Ties That Bind this morning and appreciated the ridiculous degree of soul he injects into every Springsteen song.

And Lady Gaga, because he's apparently her saxophonist above all:

He's suffered a ton of health problems the past decade. He's had multiple surgeries on his hips, back and both knees and spent much of the shows on the last E Street Band tour in a big chair on the side of the stage in between songs. From all accounts, he was confined most of the time to a wheelchair or at best, getting around on crutches recently due to reoccurring back issues the past year.

From what's been reported among insiders about this stroke he suffered over the weekend, he was in "dire" condition Sunday and has undergone two brain surgeries and is paralyzed on his left side. It was very much a real possibility he was going to pass away Sunday night and a call went out to close friends and everyone in the E Street band to come to the hospital immediately. His condition has improved today and is able to recognize people but the next week or so will be critical.

.

I'm really having a hard time coping with possibilities here. Suffice it to say, I'm pretty down right now.
