Saturday, 18 Jun 2011 10:45 PM

NEW YORK (AP) — Bruce Springsteen says the loss of fellow band member Clarence Clemons is "immeasurable" and that he and his bandmates are honored and thankful to have been able to stand beside him for nearly 40 years.

Clemons, the saxophone player in the E Street Band, died Saturday evening after complications from a stroke that the musician suffered about a week ago.

Springsteen said on his website that Clemons loved the fans and gave everything he had every night he stepped on stage.

Springsteen added that with Clarence at his side, he and the band were able to tell a story far deeper than what was simply contained in their music. Springsteen says Clemons' life, memory and love will live on in their band.
