Clarence Clemons: Who Do I Think I Am? Trailer

"Find your own true destiny and purpose in this life, while the book is still open…" Virgil Films has debuted the trailer for Clarence Clemons: Who Do I Think I Am?, a documentary about musician Clarence Clemons. Also known as "The Big Man", Clarence played saxophone and was a part of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band for many years. This new Who Do I Think I Am? (I like the twist from "who do you" to "I") documentary highlights the life of the beloved E Street band member, while also showing another side not many saw when he was away from stage. "It's an intimate portrait of a man who searched for enlightenment at the unknowingly final years of his life." With the help of producer Joe Amodei, the film has become more than just a document of Clarence's spiritual journey - it's biography for his life and a love letter and farewell from those that knew him best. Clemons passed away in 2011 at the age of 69. Looks like a nice spiritual doc.

People are trying to make sense of their lives. Which is always somethingm, not to give up. He obviously wasn't only physilcally a big man ...

I too have searched for enlightenment and meaning from the East and China and India and I immediately understood the title. Who or what is this I that is aware of me or whatever it is when I refer to myself as I? I did this...I did that...but what is the I that is aware of that I? Good stuff and I didn't know that about this man. He went early, but my understanding tells me he lived a long and good life and his work was done here so onward he went. Great sax player! I hope he found the peace and answers he went searching for and I admire him for that.

Sure, that's why I love the title. I appreciate that mentality and spirituality, and how it forces us to examine ourselves as much as our place in society.

Yes...the narrow road to the interior is a less road traveled and it's interesting to me that this very successful and talented sax player took that road. Good stuff and I look forward to seeing this film. Thanks for the head's up, Alex.
