New Jersey Prays For Clarence Clemons' Recovery

Sad news yesterday from Florida, where saxophonist Clarence Clemons, the big man who made all the little pretties raise their hands when he joined the E-Street Band in 1972, was left partially paralyzed after suffering a stroke at his home. He’s had two brain surgeries, but is reportedly now in stable condition. Clemons, 69, plays on Lady Gaga’s new album, on a song called “The Edge of Glory,” and performed it with her on American Idol last month.

Here’s wishing him a full recovery.
