Clarence Clemons - Who Do I Think I Am?
After Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's marathon Rising Tour came to an end in 2003, Clarence Clemons felt like he needed a break. So he packed up his saxophone and voyaged to China, where he could be more-or-less a nameless traveler in a foreign land. Who Do I Think I Am? continued to follow Clarence after China and document his transcendent awakening... and then tragedy struck. While in Florida, Clarence suffered a stroke and passed away.

Featuring interviews with President Bill Clinton, Joe Walsh, Nils Lofgren, Jake Clemons, former bandmates, friends, and close family members, as well as Chris Phillips and Shawn Poole from Backstreets, Who Do I Think I Am? highlights Clarence's life as musician and member of the E Street band while also presenting another side of the Big Man not many saw when he was away from bright stage lights. It's an intimate portrait of a man who searched for enlightenment and meaning at the unknowingly final years of his life.

Just Around the Corner: The Bob Benjamin Story
Being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease at 38 was quite a blow to Bob Benjamin. But instead of letting the diagnosis take him down, Bob chose a different path. He recruited his friends -- many of them musicians with whom he had worked with in the past -- to help him fight the disease. The New Jersey-based Light of Day Foundation, whose main source of fundraising comes from the annual music festival that originated along the Jersey Shore and has grown into a worldwide series of concerts, which has raised over one million dollars for research. In this documentary, Bob's story is accompanied by the music of many of the artists who have so generously donated their time and talent over the years, including The Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen, in support of Bob and his fight for a cure.

A Good Life: The Joe Grushecky Story
Too many times in life when people realize that their dreams are not going to come true they, much too often, give up on those dreams and instead accept the hand that life deals them. Joe Grushecky is not one of these people. Faced with the fact that his dream of making it big in the unforgiving business of rock n' roll was going to fall just short, Joe Grushecky chose a different path. He kept fighting. This is his story. It's a tale of determination, passion, desire, and success... no matter how you measure it. A bonus CD features 8 songs, live performances by Joe and the Houserockers with guest Bruce Springsteen.
