Much has been written about Tommy Mottola, one of the most powerful, visionary, and successful executives in the history of the music industry. He discovered, developed, and launched the careers of many superstars, including Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, and Gloria Estefan and is credited with creating the "Latin Explosion." He has had the privilege of working alongside Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Barbra Streisand, the Dixie Chicks, Pearl Jam, Aerosmith, Tony Bennett, and Ozzy Osbourne, among other music giants. This is his story-a story of the modern music industry, from Elvis to the iPod, through the eyes of the man who made much of it happen. HITMAKER recounts how a Bronx kid and college dropout became one of the music industry's most creative and controversial CEOs. For the first time, Tommy lays bare the facts behind the most sensational aspects of his life, including being married to and developing the career of Mariah Carey, managing Michael Jackson's emotional ups and downs, and the power struggle with his onetime boss and mentor Walter Yetnikoff. HITMAKER will take you inside this world of power, money, and fame as he reveals his fascinating dealings with countless icons and how he was sitting at the top when the business suddenly changed. Tommy's story is one of incredible highs and lows-and here it is, in his own voice, for the first time.
