October 21st saw the release of "Big Man", the larger than life autobiography of Clarence Clemons.

Recognized as the most accomplished and well known member of the E-Street Band, saxophonist Clarence Clemons is delivering the inside story of his life before, during and beyond the E-Street Band, including unbelievable, never-before-told adventures with Bruce Springsteen, the band, and an incredible cast of other famous characters recounted by himself and his best friend, television writer/ producer Don Reo in Big Man.

This is a must-read for all fans of Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band.

I've never understood the appeal of Springsteen. Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike him. I've just never understood the zeal of many of his die-hard fans. The thing is, even if I don't share that zeal with the fans of certain other bands, I on some levels understand it.

With Springsteen I neither share nor fully understand the zeal of his most devoted fans. And I am curious and would like to understand it as I believe it would increase my appreciation of Bruce's music if I had a die-hard fan explain his/her love of Bruce's music.

LOL, Barbara. Glad I could amuse. But I was/am actually serious.

With some artists that I "don't get" I really don't care one way or the other that I don't get them. With Springsteen it's different. I wish I did "get" his music. I feel like I'm somehow missing out by not getting it.
