Rock Legends Pay Tribute to Clarence Clemons

Clarence Clemons Tribure by Bon JoviOn Sunday night, rock gods paid tribute to Clarence Clemons, who died Saturday after suffering a stroke last week.

It is reported that Bon Jovi performed “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out” during a Sunday show in Denmark.

Coldplay acknowledged Clemons’ death by posting a YouTube video of the Springsteen classic “Jungleland” in which Big Man rips a sultry solo.  Accompanying the posted video is a message that reads “RIP our favourite saxophone player, Clarence ‘Big Man’ Clemons.”

U2′s frontman Bono honored Clemons at the band’s Sunday night concert in Anaheim by telling the crowd, “I want you to think about Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band of Brothers.  I want you to think of Clarence Clemons.  This man just carried music and music carried him until this day.”

U2 then played “Moment of Surrender,” which ended with a reading of “Jungleland.” Bono’s words and U2′s tribute can be viewed below.
