Clarence Clemons - soulmate, storyteller, blood brother and epic saxophone player to Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band for almost 40 years - has died from complications of a stroke at 69. He will be missed. Springsteen calls his loss "immeasurable." Man, sometimes we feel old.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
