    After gaining some pop culture steam for his work on Lady Gaga's Born This Way, The E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons died. A spokeswoman confirmed that Clemons died on Saturday in Florida at age 69. Boo. We are so bummed at this passing.

    Clemons suffered a stroke just a week ago.

    Clemons was known as the "Big Man," since he was six-foot-five and weighted over 270 pounds!

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to Clemons' family and colleagues.

    His legacy will live on his musical catalog.

    Were you a fan of Clarence Clemons?
