This is incredible! I have hoped this video would one day surface!

Many years ago at the start of a Joe Cocker tour a few of us were flown over early to do a festival in San Remo, Italy where all the acts play their radio single. The acts would use a pre-recorded track of the record without the vocal and the artist would sing live to the track. The song was Joe’s hit at the time, “Unchain My Heart“. We neglected to bring a sax player… So I volunteered… Sounds just like Clarence Clemons don’t I!?!?.

Funny thing is Art Garfunkel asked me afterwards if I was interested in playing sax on his next tour… DOH!

And now at last… enjoy the video!
