Gary U - Gary U.s. Bonds: 'Clarence Clemons Called Me Just Before He Died'

Singer/songwriter Gary U.S. Bonds was stunned to discover the last call late saxophonist Clarence Clemons made before his death in June, 2011 was to him.

The two stars were close friends and Bruce Springsteen's sideman was trying to persuade Bonds to join him at a charity show just before he passed away.

He tells BlogTalkRadio.com, "I was going down to do his show that he was calling me to do. The last call he made on his cell phone was to me and that was to do the show.

"When his family found him dead they checked his phone and the last number he dialled was mine! So they called me and said, 'Clarence passed away and we noticed he called you.' I said, 'What?' We did the show anyway. It was a fundraiser he was doing in Florida at the Hard Rock."
