Big Man, saxophonist Clarence Clemons, bows out

Scores of fans gathered on Sunday at a legendary rock club to mourn the death and celebrate the life and music of saxophonist Clarence Clemons.

The Stone Pony in Asbury Park was the place where Clemons, Bruce Springsteen and other E Street bandmates got their musical starts. It opened its doors to a crowd of about 150 people, many adorned in Springsteen T-shirts.

A makeshift vigil got under way at the club late on Saturday as word spread of Clemons' death from complications of a stroke he had suffered about a week earlier at his home on Singer Island, Florida. By Sunday afternoon, the stage was adorned with Clemons' photos.

Fans were lining up to snap pictures and leave flowers to honour Clemons. He was known as the Big Man, a nod to his physical size, stage presence and booming sax notes.
