Bruce Springsteen continues to be one of the classiest guys out there!
Since Clarence Clemons's passing, the saxophone hasn't had the same touch as it did with Big Man.
So, keeping things in house, The Boss has chosen Clemons's nephew to fill his spot on Bruce and the E Street Band's upcoming tour!

We're sad that Clarence Clemons won't be around for this one, but we know he'd be happy to hear that Bruce is still going strong!
Last we heard about Bruce Springsteen's plans for 2012, he had confirmed an E Street Band tour, which starts up in Europe this summer.
Now, some new details have been revealed about Bruce's next album! Here's what a source had to say about the upcoming release:

But wherever he is now, we're sure he is happy for his crew. His legacy will live on through their music.
Bruce Springsteen has confirmed that the E Street Band will be touring this coming year. The band will take to Europe for the summer months, so we imagine they'll be back in the states by the end of August at the latest.
This will mark the band's return to the road in three years and the first time they'll be touring without their beloved saxophone man, Clarence Clemons, who died just last year.
While the tour will be somewhat somber, it also will be very exciting for fans of the band, as Bruce also revealed there will be some new music to enjoy come 2012. On the band's website, he wrote:

Bruce and Clarence were clearly truly great friends.
Last month, we were very sad to report that E Street Band member/legendary saxophonist Clarence Clemons had passed away at the age of 69 following a massive stroke.
Yesterday, as a tribute to Clarence, Bruce Springsteen performed a 45 minute set during the Tribute to the Late, Great Clarence Clemons event, which took place at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park, NJ.

We have very sad news.
Saxophonist Clarence Clemons has died at the age of 69.
The E Street Band member who Bruce Springsteen called his "beloved comrade," had suffered from a massive stroke on June 12 and had been hospitalized. He passed away on Saturday.
While his condition seemed to be improving after being hospitalized and two subsequent brain surgeries, he unfortunately took a turn for the worse later this week.
Known as the Big Man by fans and friends, he performed on such hits as Born to Run, Thunder Road, Jungleland, and Dancing in the Dark.
Bruce once said of Clarence:
"The story I have told throughout my work life I could not have told as well without Clarence."
He will be greatly missed. His family, friends, and band mates will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Bruce Springsteen has finally come forward to talk about his beloved bandmate Clarence Clemons and the stroke he suffered earlier in the week.
Taking to his Twitter and Facebook, the Boss admitted his friend's condition is "serious" and that he’s going to need some time to get back to his former self. He calls the saxophonist a “beloved comrade” and adds:
“Clarence will need much care and support to achieve his potential once again.”
Well, between his wife, his family and his musical colleagues, we're sure he is surrounded by love and support right now.
Keep the faith, Clarence! You're going to pull through this!

Although Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons was reported to be in serious condition after suffering a stroke over the weekend in Florida, a source close to the Big Man has revealed that he is showing signs of improvement!
Apparently, he was initially paralyzed on his left side, but has already begun squeezing with his left hand!
The insider reveals:
"His vital signs are improving. He's responsive. This is the best news we've heard since [the stroke] happened — it's nothing short of miraculous. The next five days will still be critical. But he's a fighter."
Indeed, he must be! This is wonderful news!
Keep on fighting, Clarence!
We're all rooting for your recovery!
