Clarence Clemons, the legendary saxophonist and member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, has suffered a stroke, according to multiple reports.
A source confirmed to the Associated Press that Clemons, 69, had the stroke but had no further information on his condition.
Springsteen's top fan site, meanwhile, posted a "miracles are happening" update on Clemons Monday. "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," the post read. "The next five days will still be critical. But he's a fighter."
Clemons's nephew, Jake Clemons, also a saxophonist, updated his Facebook status on Monday to read: "Please do not lose Hope!"

The events of Sept. 11 feature prominently on Bruce Springsteen's new album, "The Rising," his first studio recording with the E Street Band in 15 years, reports the Associated Press. Fifteen songs from the CD will offer individual stories from that day. "I felt that I saw nobility," Springsteen told The New York Times on Sunday. "Not the kind you read in the story books, but the kind where people go in to work every day, they come home every day, and dinner's on the table every day. These are the people that I want to write about." The singer-songwriter, who frequently writes about the concerns of the everyman, sings about the lives of the heroes that emerged after that day. The CD is due to be released on July 30. Springsteen's other albums include "Born to Run," "Born in the USA," "Tunnel of Love" and "Nebraska."
