Many fans of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band were sad to hear that 69-year-old Clarence “The Big Man” Clemons suffered a stroke on Sunday in his Florida home. Then, according to a recent article from The Erie Times, the famed saxophone player underwent two brain surgeries for this stroke.
The article goes on to report that while it was touch-and-go following surgery, Clemons is now showing improvement. What’s more, he is even squeezing with his left hand, which had been paralyzed directly following the stroke.
Get well soon, Clarence! Your fans are thinking of you!
