Clemons and Special Celebrity Guests to Walk the Red Carpet at 7:30 p.m.
Legendary saxophonist Clarence Clemons and special celebrity guests will celebrate the publishing of Clemons' new memoir, BIG MAN: Real Life & Tall Tales. Clemons will be relaying entertaining anecdotes from the book, co-authored by celebrated TV producer, writer and Big Man's best friend Don Reo with a foreward by Bruce Springsteen, as well as answering questions, mingling with party guests and autographing copies.
We all know them - Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band, but what exactly are the stories behind this amazing rock sensation that took the nation by storm and reinvigorated what it meant to be American? Who is the giant, the "Big Man" that commanded the stage with as much ease as he did power?
For the first time, Clarence "Big Man" Clemons and co-author, Don Reo, have put their experiences to paper shedding light on the almighty E-Street Band. This compilation features both true, unknown stories from the E-Street Band as well as a series of hybrid fact-and-fiction stories called "Legends," as relayed by Clarence's larger-than-life storyteller persona.
