    Legendary saxophonist Clarence Clemons, 69, of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band has suffered a stroke.

    Showbiz 411's Roger Friedman reported last night that Clemons "is said to be seriously ill after a stroke at his home in Florida."

    Friedman notes that Clemons has had health problems in the past, including having both knees replaced, but "this situation, as described to me this evening, sounds pretty dire. I am told that members of the E Street Band were advised to get down to Florida as soon as possible."

    AP and Rolling Stone say they have confirmed the report, citing an anonymous source.

    Clemons last performed with Springsteen and the E Street Band in December of 2010 at Asbury Park's Carousel House for a special web broadcast taping. He can be heard on two songs on Lady Gaga's new album Born This Way, and played on stage with her last month during the American Idol season finale.
