He is improving so lets hope things continue to go well. From Backstreets.Com:

"MIRACLES ARE HAPPENING"
The latest out of Florida has Clarence Clemons in better condition than anyone expected, a close friend tells Backstreets: "Yesterday, it did not look good at all. Today... miracles are happening. His vital signs are improving. He's responsive. His eyes are welling up when we're talking to him. He was paralyzed on his left side, but now he's squeezing with his left hand. 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."

Please join us in continuing to send prayers, love, and light to the Big Man.

Hi Steven Kush and Gwen,

I found this nice video of Clarence talking about when he first met Bruce:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRFPWWoxpro&NR=1

also was intrigued to see this new work with Lady Gaga. Here she is, possibly sounding like Jim Steinman on a bad day, Clarence just appearing towards the end:

Pop videos these days make Madonna look like Mary Whitehouse!

No news is good news so all the best from the LC forum for your continuing recovery, Big Man, Sir.

Hi,

Thanks Diane for posting the video links and for the update. The first video is interesting, with
Clarence's comments relating to race and his reminiscing about the stormy night he first met Bruce Springsteen.
The Lady Gaga clip shows Clarence in a pop, banal situation, i.m.o. Not faulting him, though the performance didn't allow him to showcase any of the level of talent he's demonstrated with the E Street Band.
