The Soundtrack of My Life
In the history of popular music, no one looms as large as Clive Davis. His career has spanned more than forty years and he has discovered, signed, or worked with a staggering array of artists: Janis Joplin, Simon and Garfunkel, Barry Manilow, Patti Smith, Lou Reed, Dionne Warwick, Whitney Houston, Carlos Santana, The Grateful Dead, Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, and Aretha Franklin, to name only a few. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, received a Lifetime Achievement Grammy, and hosted decades of the world’s highest profile parties.
In his autobiography, Mr. Davis tells it all with a wit, frankness, and style all his own. His incredible stories—some hilarious, others tragic, all revealing—offer invaluable insights into the last half century of music.
