Bruce Springsteen’s Statement On Clarence Clemons Passing:

It is with overwhelming sadness that we inform our friends and fans that at 7:00 tonight, Saturday, June 18, our beloved friend and bandmate, Clarence Clemons passed away. The cause was complications from his stroke of last Sunday, June 12th.

Bruce Springsteen said of Clarence: Clarence lived a wonderful life. He carried within him a love of people that made them love him. He created a wondrous and extended family. He loved the saxophone, loved our fans and gave everything he had every night he stepped on stage. His loss is immeasurable and we are honored and thankful to have known him and had the opportunity to stand beside him for nearly forty years. He was my great friend, my partner, and with Clarence at my side, my band and I were able to tell a story far deeper than those simply contained in our music. His life, his memory, and his love will live on in that story and in our band.


The Stone Pony family is deeply saddened by the passing of Clarence Clemons. Clarence will always be our friend, brother and a beloved founding father of Asbury Park’s historic musical heritage. The Pony will open at noon on Sun., June 19 for fans to share their thoughts and reflect on memories as the “Sounds of Asbury Park” are played through our concert sound system. God bless Clarence Clemons.
