(RockAAA) Everyone is feeling the sudden loss of Bruce Springsteen sax man Clarence Clemons, who passed away last Saturday following complications from a stroke the week earlier.

From one Jersey band to another, rockers Bon Jovi paid tribute to Clemons Sunday night in Denmark, with a performance of the Springsteen classic, "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out."

"A long way from here, back in our home state of New Jersey," began the introduction by Jon Bon Jovi. "We lost a pillar of the rock n roll community today. Woke up to hear that Clarence Clemons of the E Street Band had passed. The Big Man had gone up to heaven to play for the Big Man upstairs. The only thing bigger in stature and status was probably the size of the guy's heart. He was always kind, always had a kind thing to say…no matter if we were going to see them or he was coming to see us. The Big Man will be missed forever. But the legend of the E Street Band with Clarence Clemons will always live on. So for our friend…and our friends…."
