Oh No, Clarence Clemons has passed away from complications after suffering a stroke last week. Clarence is best known for being a saxophonist with Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band and had a few solos on Lady Gaga’s Born This Way album.

According to People,

Clarence Clemons, the longtime saxophonist in Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, died Saturday of complications from a stroke. He was 69.

Known as The Big man, the 6′, 4″ former college football player was a legendary sideman for the New Jersey-born rocker from the early 1970s, playing on such hits as “Born to Run” and “Thunder Road.”

Clemons had dealt with a series of medical problems over the past decade, including having both knees replaced and spinal fusion surgery, but his health had seemed to be improving.

Last week, it was revealed he had been hospitalized with a stroke. After early improvement, he took a turn for the worse later in the week.
