E Street Band Saxophonist Clarence Clemons Has Suffered a Stroke

E Street Band saxophonist Clarence "The Big Man" Clemons suffered a stroke on Sunday, Rolling Stone reports. Rolling Stone has no information on the stroke's severity, but 411.com says Clemons is "seriously ill." In the past year, Clemons, who has released solo albums as well as a memoir, suffered several medical ailments and had his knees replaced. "The last tour was pure hell," he recently said. We wish him well. [RS, AP via WP]
