January 11 is now officially Clarence Clemons Day in New Jersey. Governor Chris Christie signed off on the resolution to annually celebrate the day, which is "Big Man's" birthday.

According to the DailyRecord.com , the resolution states, in part: “WHEREAS, During the E Street Band ’s legendary live concerts Clarence Clemons’ saxophone solos were highly anticipated and he was always introduced last in the band introductions, to the delight of the concertgoers who greeted his every move with roars of approval."

The act was a labor of love for Christie, who's an avid fan of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band. The resolution was first introduced in 2011 by state Senator Jennifer Beck , a resident of Red Bank, New Jersey, where Clemons once owned a music club. 

Clemons died on June 18, 2011 at the age of 69 after suffering a stroke.
