NEW YORK (AP) – When Steven Van Zandt gets an award named after Clarence Clemons, it makes sense that Bruce Springsteen should present it to him. Springsteen gave Van Zandt the Big Man of the Year Award in New York Tuesday during a benefit for Little Kids Rock, a music education charity. Springsteen joked about Van Zandt’s poor housekeeping skills when they were roommates, a charge Van Zandt claims with a smile is a lie. Darlene Love, Elvis Costello and Dion performed at the event. Van Zandt says music as a career is fun, but it requires a lot of work.
