Saxophonist Clarence Clemons suffered a serious stroke over the weekend but is in stable condition, according to reports from earlier this week Update: R.I.P. Clarence Clemons (1942-2011)

The longtime Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band member is based in Singer Island near West Palm Beach. According to a message from the Boss himself, "While all initial signs are encouraging, Clarence will need much care and support to achieve his potential once again."

One person who has provided a ton of support from the moment news of Clemons' stroke had spread was collaborator Lady Gaga. His vibrant sax work showed up on two songs from her most recent album, Born This Way, and she decided to call upon her fans to show her concern and appreciation.

Her message:

"Hi Clarence, this is Gaga. I miss you so much. I'm in Paris right now,

and I just sang 'Edge of Glory' on X-Factor. I wish I was there with you.

But I wanted to put together this special gift of videos for you.

Little Monsters love you so, so much, and I love you so, so much. And

everything that you've done for me, and for this album, means the world

to us. We wanted to wish you: Get well soon, a big hug from the whole

world from me to you. We love you, Clarence. Feel better."

Here's the 13-minute montage of Gaga fans showing their love:
