Clive Davis To Release Autobiography Next Year
Clive Davis is taking some time to reflect on his life in a new autobiography.
The memoir, due out in February, will tackle the record business legend’s early beginnings, going from an orphaned teen to a Harvard Law School graduate and eventually becoming the hit maker we know now.
Davis doesn’t seem opposed to spilling some juicy secrets either.
In a statement from publisher Simon & Schuster they break down some of the topics he’ll be covering including a chance encounter with John Lennon, how he helped Bruce Springsteen with his debut, Greetings From Asbury Park and what Janis Joplin, who was the first person he signed to Columbia Records, propositioned him to do in celebration of her signing. Davis says he politely declined, but stayed close with the singer until her death.
Davis is collaborating with Rolling Stone contributor Anthony DeCurtis, for his as-yet-untitled autobiography. Davis previously released the memoir, Clive: Inside the Record Business in 1975.
