Saxophonist Clarence Clemons Tribute Coming August 13 from Virgil Films

Virgil Films & Entertainment is releasing Clarence Clemons: Who Do I Think I Am? (DVD: 2 discs, $24.95), slated for August 13. An intimate portrait of one of the most famous saxophone players in the world, Clarence Clemons—known as “Big Man” and a lifetime member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band—was followed by director, friend, and photographer Nick Mead, who documented Clarence’s transcendent awakening overseas in a spiritual journey to China. Once Clemons had returned to the States, Mead decided to keep the cameras rolling, which is when tragedy struck: while in Florida, Clarence suffered a stroke and passed away. With the help of producer Joe Amodei, the film became a biography of his life and a love letter and farewell from those that knew him best. Featuring interviews with President Bill Clinton, Joe Walsh, Nils Lofgren, Jake Clemons, and former band mates, friends, and close family members, Who Do I Think I Am? highlights Clemons’s life as musician and member of the E Street band while also presenting another side of the man not many knew when he was away from bright stage lights.
