Enjoy the interview and make sure to catch the guys when they come to your area this summer.

Book Review – The Soundtrack of My Life by Clive Davis

Clive Davis - The Soundtrack of My Life

The Soundtrack of My Life by Clive Davis is a fascinating look into the life of, perhaps, the greatest music producer and executive of all time. While some readers found this book to be nothing more than Davis patting himself on the back, I beg to differ. To me, it was an exciting journey through a charmed life that included fascinating stories about everyone from Alicia Keys to, my favorite, Barry Manilow. Yes, it is long, so don’t pick this up expecting a quick beach read. But if you love music as much as I do, and you approach it with an open mind, I think you’ll agree that The Soundtrack of My Life is a worthwhile read.

Below is an excellent interview Clive Davis did with Wendy Williams to promote the book.
