The kind folks at Sideways Media have generously offered to send me a copy of Clarence Clemons' autobio "Big Man: Real Life & Tall Tales" for one of my readers (!) :)

Big Man has been a vital part of Bruce Springsteen's very successful E Street Band. He's also worked with tons of other greats, including Jackson Browne and Aretha Franklin. He is a very interesting person and I can't wait to read his book, especially since I love musician biographies anyway.

Here's a little video for you, it's Big Man talking about the saxophone:

Okay, so now you know what you're getting!
How the heck do you win?

3) If you have your own blog, link back to this post and leave the LINK back to your blog post in your comment.

You have a maximum of three entries. I'm going to choose the winner by using This website will generate a random number and that number will correspond with the comments. The first person who comments will be number 1 and will continue until the last person who will be n.

You have through Monday, November 16th (all the way up until midnight of that day)!!
I will announce the winner on Tuesday. Your book will then be mailed to you one week later when I am home for Thanksgiving break and am able to make sure everything is done properly.

First artist autobiography I read was "Daybreak" by Joan Baez -- I was in junior high and did a book report on it. Made an impression on me.

I liked Bill Wyman's "Stone Alone". I'd like to see a book on The Doobie Brothers.
