Sample text

Don and Clarence From the Massive Desk of Clarence Clemons I’d like to add one other thing. As this book grew, one thing became clear—it’s impossible to tell my story without telling at least part of Bruce’s story. But so much of his story has been told elsewhere in so many different books and articles that the challenge became how to write about him in a new and different way. I wanted to give the reader a glimpse into the personal and private side of our relationship without getting too personal and private.

My imagination was racing constantly with fragments of songs and pictures and a torrent of words. The horn was an instant window into my interior life. It was like a magic door in the wall that you could look through into the most beautiful garden in the world. I had lunch at the counter at the Oyster Bar. I couldn’t afford much. I had clam chowder and a beer. Both were fantastic. I wanted to eat there every day for the rest of my life. I put a package of oyster crackers in my shirt pocket, paid the bill, and reluctantly left.

The beer was cold and tasted like July. Above them they could hear all the sounds of the Boardwalk. The gorgeous smell of cheap fried food hung in the air all around them. They were both wearing shorts and T-shirts and flip-flops, which they had kicked off to stick their feet into the sand. The sand was cooler just below the surface and felt good. They were meeting two girls later at the Wonder Bar and thought they’d get a little buzz going to make conversation easier. They hadn’t yet formalized their professional relationship, but music had already given them a connection that felt good.
