The Big Man was best known for blowing the saxophone that powered Bruce Springsteen’s East Street Band to unbelievable heights of energy, but he had a solo career as a musician and actor. He fronted the Red Bank Rockers and owned the Big Man’s West Club. He guested on countless recordings from Ringo Starr to Lady Gaga and his duet with Jackson Browne ‘You’re a Friend of Mine’ was a Top 20 hit. He was in ‘Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure’, made many cameo TV appearances, and was an advocate and fundraiser for the HomeSafe kids charity and Little Kids Rock. The Big Man was awarded the President’s Volunteer Service Award in 2010. Clarence was a founder member of the East Street Band in 1972, and his stage persence was big enough to occasionally claim the limelight from ‘The Boss’, which is saying something! Sadly, he passed away before seeing The E St. Band inducted into the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.
