The legendary saxophonist and E Street Band stalwart Clarence Clemons has died, aged 69.
Bruce Springsteen posted on the band's website:
"His loss is immeasurable and we are honored and thankful to have known him and had the opportunity to stand beside him for nearly 40 years. He was my great friend, my partner, and with Clarence at my side, my band and I were able to tell a story far deeper than those simply contained in our music. His life, his memory, and his love will live on in that story and in our band."
