Summary

Howard Bloom - called “the greatest press agent that rock and roll has ever known” by Derek Sutton, the former manager of Styx, Ten Years After, and Jethro Tull - is a science nerd who knew nothing about popular music. But he founded the biggest PR firm in the music industry and helped build or sustain the careers of our biggest rock legends, including Michael Jackson, Prince, Bob Marley, Bette Midler, Billy Joel, Billy Idol, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, David Byrne, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Queen, Kiss, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Run DMC, ZZ Top, Joan Jett, Chaka Khan, and 100 more. 

What was he after? He was on a hunt for the gods inside of you and me. Einstein, Michael Jackson & Me is Bloom’s story - the strange tale of a scientific expedition into the dark underbelly of science and fame where new myths and movements are made.

The author I met while walking my dog

As you stroll around the park walking your dog, you see people among you enjoying the splendor of the park as well. A casual nod to someone as they pet your dog turns into a fascinating encounter. This amiable man clad all in black was a tender, soft spoken gentleman who I exchanged pleasantries with. I do the obligatory inquiry on what he does for a living. What I found out was a life of star studded encounters in the music industry and his role as shaman in making those musical legends. Not only did I have the privilege of reading his exploits, I can continue learning the intrigues of his life by simply putting a leash on my dog and proceed to the park. A life, a fascinating read.
