E Street Band sax player Clarence Clemons remembered

ASBURY PARK - Outside the legendary Stone Pony, where Bruce Springsteen began his career, fans brought flowers and lit candles to mourn the passing of saxophonist Clarence Clemons, also known as the Big Man.

Clemons died at his home in Florida Saturday, after suffering complications from a stroke.

The Stone Pony opened early to pay tribute to the legend. Fans took pictures of the photos on stage as the band's music played over the speakers.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is a major fan, tweeted Friday night, "A very sad night for Springsteen fans & all of NJ--thanks Clarence Clemons for 40 years of magical & soulful music. He will be missed forever."
