Big Man tells the fascinating story of Clarence Clemons, the larger-than-life saxophone player of the E Street Band.

The book is filled with never-before-told stories about Clarence's life, his friendship with Bruce Springsteen, and his encounters with some of the most famous people in the world. Along the way, Clarence and Don spin their own fictional "legends" that add to the already-mystical lore of E Street.
