Clemons has released a new album, "Hero," on CBS Records, played on Aretha Franklin's hit single and video, "Freeway of Love," and appeared as Gary Coleman's music teacher on a recent episode of NBC-TV's "Diff'rent Strokes." Besides promoting his "Hero" album, Clemons has been busy reading TV scripts for various shows, including "Miami Vice" and "Hill Street Blues." "A lot of the stuff I'm reading now is totally away from being a musician. I want to develop myself as an actor, not a 'musician-actor.' I'd like to step from behind the saxophone and present myself as someone else," he said.

Come Enjoy New Year's Eve With Us At EDDIE'S CLUB State St. and general crowd-pleaser for the E Street Band? "The E Street Band is a lifetime job," said Clemons, who will be 44 on Jan. 11. Still, he'd like to do more. Clemons and his wife, Christina, became parents when their son, Gandhar Christopher, was born on Feb. 23 during the same tour break in which Springsteen married Julianne Phillips. The marriage during that busy time also meant Springsteen had to decline joining Clemons on the "Hero" album's duet, "You're a Friend of Mine." Instead, Clemons asked Jackson Browne, a friend since their club playing days in the early 1970s, to join him. Also heard on background vocals is Browne's girlfriend, actress Daryl Hannah. A video of the song also includes Cyndi Lauper, Huey Lewis and Eddie Murphy. During the recording of "Hero," Clemons was introduced to the Hindu teachings of an Indian guru named Sri Chinmoy. Clemons adopted the spiritual name of Mokshagun, meaning liberation fire. Clemen's newfound philosophy is throughout the album — a set of songs dealing with fidelity, friendship, life on the road, and in "Cross the Line," his marriage. He and his wife met while he was on tour in Stockholm in 1975. Only one letter passed between them in the next six years. But Clemons, again on tour, met her again in the summer of 1981 and proposed. She accepted, and they were married Oct. 9,1981, on the top of a volcanic crater in Hawaii. At 6 feet, 3 inches and 250 pounds, Clemons was once an offensive center for the New Jersey Generals. He briefly attended Maryland State College on a football and music scholarship. "Hero" is the first album on which he sings solo, reviving skills he learned as a child when he traveled with his aunts and uncles as the "Family Four" gospel group. "Each album becomes more and more me," said Clemons. "My first album (with the Red Bank Rockers), I was just learning. On this album I've learned a bit more, singing on this one, and on the next one I'll write abitmore." While his singing sprang from his Baptist background, his pursuit of Hindu philosophy was a reaction to the fundamentalism of his youth. "I had to go to church every Sunday," he said. "I remember my grandfather used to preach hellfire and brimstone. I was scared to go outside at night." Clemons was born in Norfolk, Va. His father gave him his first saxophone as a Christmas present. The teen-ager, whose idol was rhythm and blues musician King Curtis, commuted by trolley to Norfolk State College for beginner's lessons. At Crestwood High School, he played in the jazz band, switching from altwto baritone sax. While at Maryland State College, where he majored in sociology, Clemons joined a 12-piece band called the Vibratones, performing until he left college to play football for the semi-pro Newark Bears and Jersey Generals. He still moonlighted as a musician for such bands as Little Melvin and the Invaders, the Entertainers and Norman Selden's Joyful Noise. One night, Joyful Noise's lead singer, Karen Cassidy, took Clemons to the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, N.J., to see Springsteen. Clemons jammed with the young rocker after hours and soon became a member of the E Street band, leaving football behind. 11 am-2 pm Mon.-Thurs. at MID-AMERICA INN RESTAURANT Help yourself at our SOUP, SALAD & SANDWICH BAR *3.95 1842 N. 9th 823-267O OJU Watch For Our t NEW MOVIES C ARRIVING DAILY •St. Elmos Fire •Teen Wolf •Return Of The Jedl •Weird Science •Stuff •Del-Con 4 •Last Dragon •Coca Cola Kid •Mad Max •Road Warrior •Man With One Red Shoe •Red Sonja •Future Kill •Creator 99* MOVIES: • 7 Days A Week 80% Of Our Stock Gold Star Tapes $ «| 99 7 Days A ^ Week VCR PLAYERS Tuesday & Wednesday $ 4 f\OO Per 1 W Week Normal_$20.C_0 Per Week DOWNTOWN NEWS & BOOKS CARROLL'S BOOKSTORE Open 7 Days A Week 24 Hour Drop Boxes MONDAY NIGHT SPECIAL 5PM To 9 PM STOCKADE SPECIAL CUT SIRLOIN 8 oz.
