E Street Band sax player Clarence Clemons dies

RIVIERA BEACH, FL (AP) - A spokeswoman for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band says saxophone player Clarence Clemons has died in Florida at age 69.

Spokeswoman Marilyn Laverty confirmed the death Saturday.

Clemons was one of the key influences in Springsteen's life and music. He was hospitalized about a week ago after suffering a stroke at his home in Singer Island.

Known as the Big Man for his imposing 6-foot-5-inch, 270-plus pound frame, Clemons and his ever-present saxophone spent much of his life with 'The Boss'. His solos became a signature sound for the E Street Band on many songs.
