Saxophonist for the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]E Street Band[/lastfm], Clarence Clemons, is a self-declared “Gaga-ite” also known as a “Little Monster”.

According to Rolling Stone, Clemons was putting together an exercise machine in his basement when [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm]‘s people called and asked him to contribute to the new album.  The musician hoped on a plane to New York right away! “I almost got a ticket I drove so fast,” says Clemons. “It was wild. I was so excited. I’m a Gaga-ite.”

In a Manhattan studio at midnight Lady Gaga reportedly told Clemons to “‘Play from your heart. Play what you feel.”  They did a few takes.

Clemons said “I play sax through the whole song and I have a solo…  I’m surprised I’m getting paid for this. I would have done it for free. I can never believe something that feels so good earns me money.

Lady Gaga’s new album, Born This Way, will be released on May 23, 2011.
