Clarence Clemons: Who Do I Think I Am? (Documentary)

  • The Newtown Theatre 120 North State Street Newtown, PA 18940 (map)

Uncover a little-known side to saxophonist Clarence Clemons

The world knew him as The Big Man. The Minister of Soul. The Secretary of the Brotherhood. Musician, singer, songwriter and a lifetime member of the E Street Band.

But there was also a deeply spiritual side to Clarence Clemons that took the saxophonist to China.

In 2005, after a long tour with Bruce and the E Street Band, Clarence wanted to go someplace he had never been, to the other side of the world: China. 

Clarence Clemons: Who Do I Think I Am? shows the profound effect of a trip to Northeast China. This search for his true self took him from rural China to the streets of San Francisco. The documentary shows us his soulful mission and how it changed him, while paying  tribute to The Big Man through recollections with his closest friends and family members.

The film features interviews with President Bill Clinton, Jake Clemons, Joe Walsh, Willie Nile, Nils Lofgren, Vini Lopez, Norman Seldin, Michael Narada Walden, Gayle Morrison, Danny Clinch, Don Reo and additional family and friends who knew him well.

The film’s producer, Joe Amodei, and Backstreets writer Shawn Poole will be in attendance at this screening!
