Clarence Clemons spent 30 years on the road with Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band as a saxophone player. People call him “The Big Man,” and he is, in fact, a big man. You’ve seen the cover of Springsteen’s famous 1975 album Born to Run, but what you might not know is that Springsteen is leaning on Clemons, whose full figure is cropped out of the frame. Clemons’ bold, honking horn playing was a central part of the E Street Band’s live show for so many years. He lent personality and fire to Springsteen’s raw, heartland rock ‘n’ roll. But despite playing with Springsteen, Ringo Starr’s band and his own project, Clarence Clemons Temple of Soul, he found himself spiritually unsatisfied. He took a trip to China in 2005 and toured many sacred sites, and though the film doesn’t necessarily offer insight into how it affected him, you can tell that Clemons is a very contemplative person, and he sought the most meaning from life that he could possibly find. He enjoyed fishing, he healed himself through music, and he loved his friends more than anything. While you rediscover Clemons’ talent, you’ll also be struck by a man who lived several lives worth of love and pain.
