But his health seemed to be improving. Just last month, he performed with Lady Gaga on the season finale of "American Idol."
He is 69 years old.
A friend of Clemons' tells Backstreets.com that the saxophonist "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."
According to Backstreets.com, Clemons is in stable condition and responsive after undergoing two brain surgeries.
FOX 5 reports that Clemons is paralyzed on the left side of his body.
