Twas a sad sad weekend in the world of music. The Big Man responsible for the phenomenally ’80s sax solos on Lady Gaga‘s Edge of Glory and Hair passed away on Saturday of a stroke at 69. Now, little monsters might recognize him most from the Edge of Glory music video that was just released on Thursday 6/16 (which now has about 6 and a half million views), but most of the world will remember Clarence Clemons as the saxophonist for Bruce Springsteen and E Street Band, since the very beginning. Springsteen fans are now tuning into Gaga to hear his last ever performances, his last live show ever being with Mother Monster on American Idol. Read through to find out how Gaga got Clemons to play for her, and watch him on the Edge of Glory.
