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:
But 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.

"Legends have a way of growing every time they're told. This time, the tales of rock and roll history are brought to life by a legend himself, Clarence Clemons. Big Man relives Clemons's story in a unique personal narrative that's bound in both history and folklore. This is an essential read for any music lover." (President Bill Clinton)
"Big Man takes you on an outrageous journey with one of the most charismatic, gracious, kind and talented men of our time. This peek into the world of Clarence is full of fun and laughter, which is exactly what this guy is all about. He's a genuine soul worth his weight in gold. That's why he's been an inspiration to me for years and years, and his incredible music brings great joy to my heart. His role in the E Street Band helped place him and the band in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame... right where he belongs." (Pat Riley, NBA Hall Of Fame coach)
"Big Man is one of the greatest books about a big black man ever written. If you want to get really close to a big black man without getting punched in the face, this book's for you!" (Chris Rock)
Enjoyed their voices. Disliked the explanation of he said , Clarence said, Don replied. Wasn't necessary if you were paying attention you knew who said what.
Now that he's gone , I wish I had seen a concert!
Great Big Man legends and lore. As a CC fan, I liked this quite a lot. I might otherwise find some of the "dreamier" moments slightly less entertaining. In all a fascinating glimpse into the life of the Big Man — everyone's main man, CC. The cat with all the cool.
