E-Street band saxaphone player Clarence Clemons was rushed to the hospital over the weekend after suffering a stroke. New details have emerged, and we have learned that over the last few days, Clemons had two different surgeries on his brain. Initially reported by Springsteen fan site Backstreets.com and independantly verified by Rolling Stone, a source close to Clemons says:
“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.”
