A few days before Clemons' actual death -- but after he suffered the severe stroke which eventually killed him -- pop superstar Lady Gaga released a video for her track 'The Edge of Glory,' featuring Clemons on saxophone. Clemons is seen in the video sitting on a stoop next to Gaga as he blows the instrument that, in rock 'n' roll circles, he became nearly synonymous with.
The video first premiered on Fox's television series 'So You Think You Can Dance?' on Thursday (June 16) and the ill-fated -- or else, perhaps, glorious -- timing has turned what would've been a hit video anyway into a true viral sensation. Among his many, many lifelong accomplishments, let it also be said the Clemons just got a nation of die-hard Springsteen fans to sit down and watch a complete Lady Gaga video. Way to go, Big Man.
