- Clarence Clemons, the towering “Big Man” whose saxophone blasts have helped define the rock juggernaut sound of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band suffered a stroke over the weekend. The 69-year-old had been fighting health issues over the past few years, including double knee surgery. Initial reports described Clemons as “seriously ill” but there is no official statement on the severity of the stroke.

- Annual mega-festival Bonnaroo is in the books.

- Seth Putnam , the singer for an infamous punk band we won’t even think of naming here, died from a heart attack over the weekend at the age of 43.
