  1. I've never seen this video on MTV, but I have watched it many times on other sites. Wonder what Clay is up to these days and where he might be in the world. I'm sure he will surprise us.

  2. I just saw this a few days ago. Thank you CANN for posting a lot of Clay's videos that we don't get to see.I enjoy watching them and can watch them over and over again.

  3. Really love both “The Way” and “Measure of a Man” – both are excellent songs and Clay does them both justice when performing each song! I love watching any video of the WAY! I do watch it quite often. Thank you so much for all of the information and photos.
