Publisher Description

For the first time ever comes the inside story of Clarence "Big Man" Clemons--his life before, during and beyond the E-Street Band, including unbelievable, never-before-told adventures with Bruce Springsteen, the band, and an incredible cast of other famous characters recounted by himself and his best friend, television writer/ producer Don Reo.

Here are just a few things you'll get from reading it:
The truth behind the final hours of making Born To RunThe real story of how the E-Street Band got its nameWhat happened when Clarence and Ringo Starr were sitting in a hotel room and Clarence got the call that Bruce was breaking up the bandHow Bruce and Clarence met that dark, stormy night at the Student PrinceThe E-Street band's show at Sing-Sing prison where all of their equipment blows out right as they take the stageThe secret that Robert De Niro told Clarence and Bruce they had to keep for 25 yearsBut that's merely a glimpse. This is not your average rock book. It is something creative, something unique, something new. It is the story of E-Street. It is the story of stories. It is the story of the Big Man.

Big Man

An amusing and genuine account of one of rock's greatest and unique partnerships. A must-read for any E Street fan, but also a story that appeals to anyone who admires and appreciates true friendship and not doing things the conventional way. If Clarence and Bruce teach us anything, it is that any two people, no matter how different they look, act or appear, can become brothers in every sense of the word and overcome and persevere despite all of the prejudices and pressures against that happening. An inspiring account of an inspiring duo who have touched and educated millions about what can be.

Rest in peace, Big Man! You lived your life well, and left us a beautiful memory of it in your songs and your words.

Best friends for life

I could actually hear Clarence telling this story. So much of my own life is within these pages. Best friends, no matter what color their skin or language I find the very best in people. During my most difficult struggles in life Bruce and the E street band have kept me company . The most amazing concert I was blessed to see was in 1980 the River Tour. I can't help but wonder how Bruce will be without Clarence. He would want you to move ahead. He will always be by your side!

Wonderful

Such sadness at the passing of Clarence. I only saw him live once. He did bring great joy with his horn that night. His book also brought that same gift. Thank you C.
