There are signs of hope for Clarence Clemons.
The famed saxophonist for the E Street Band is responsive after suffering a stroke, according to the Bruce Spingsteen and E Street Band fan website Backstreets.com.
“Yesterday (Sunday), it did not look good at all. Today … miracles are happening,’’ the website quoted an unidentified friend of Clemons as saying. “His vital signs are improving. He’s responsive. His eyes are welling up when we’re talking to him. He was paralyzed on his left side, but now he’s squeezing with his left hand.’’

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.”
As we’re praying for the Big Man’s recovery, we heard from his sax tech, photographer Joe Lopez, who wanted to share these photos with fans. The off-stage photo is from “our last shoot a couple of weeks ago in the studio here in West Palm Beach — all smiles and laughs, the Clarence we all know and love.”
Clarence told Backstreets in 2003, “What I bring to people is pure honesty, and pure love, and hopefully it brings some light and joy to the world.” It does. And right now we’re sending it right back to you, Big Man.

“MIRACLES ARE HAPPENING”
The latest out of Florida has Clarence Clemons in better condition than anyone expected, a close friend tells Backstreets: “Yesterday, it did not look good at all. Today… miracles are happening. His vital signs are improving. He’s responsive. His eyes are welling up when we’re talking to him. He was paralyzed on his left side, but now he’s squeezing with his left hand. This is the best news we’ve heard since [the stroke] happened — it’s nothing short of miraculous. The next five days will still be critical. But he’s a fighter.”
