Clive Davis Scores Big Buck$ on Biography Book Deal

September 13th, 2012

New 2012 - Clive Davis Biography

Music Mogul Set To Mask The Whole Truth?

He’s infamously know across the music industry for making hundreds of millions of dollars byf ripping off his musicians, but that’s something Clive Davis will more than likely mask as the music mogul documents the story of his life. Don’t believe me.. Ask Barry Manilow, who once said of Davis, “I don’t know if the other artists at Arista appreciate him, but I do.” This after the summer of 1973 when Davis was abruptly fired from his presidency of the CBS Records Group after CBS executives accused Davis of using $94,000 of the company’s money for personal expenditures.

Now, Davis seems to be heading back to cash in on what he green-lights to make the pages of this latest biography – set for release February 2013.

Here’s what an insider had to say about Davis’ book deal:

“On Wednesday, the book was acquired after ‘a very spirited auction’. Financial terms were not disclosed for Davis’ book deal, but an official with knowledge of the negotiations said the deal was worth seven figures. The official was not authorized to discuss the deal and asked not to be identified.”

This isn’t the first memoir for the 80-year-old Arista Records founder - whose net worth is listed at a whopping $800M. You may remember Davis released his first book back in 1975, “Clive: Inside the Record Business”.

    Boring, unless it is gonna talk about his shady and dirty deeds and he confront the “rumors” of him and lil boys in third world countries then I’m not interested. I’m not gonna buy a book that boast on a man and make him look like a saint, something he is clearly NOT (no one is really)!

    Clive Davis has used Black talent to make himself close to a billionaire. He has made big money off of Whintey’s death. The guy is a parasite and although he has both White and Blacks on his roster at Arista he has made the most off of Whitney Houston. Phyllis Hyman saw through him early on and she jeted. I have always said she died under suspicious circumstances,just like Whitney did. Notice how immediately after Whitney died this bloodsucker went right on with his party.

    Her dead body was still in the same building as the party. How do you do that when somebody you say you love just died and you are only a few feet from their dead body?. He was already pushing JHud the night of WH death. People need to use some common sense. Clive is a demon in human form and he attaches to whomever he thinks is gonna bring him the biggest payday…..dead or alive!!

    Is he going to release his book the same month Whitney Died???? Also go back and look at all of the artists, executives and groupies who were at the party while Whitney’s body lay dead a few floors up. They are all Demons, don’t be fooled by pretty faces and smiles. Don’t believe me…ask Brandy, Alicia Keys and Ray J. You can also ask Tony Bennett and Gladys Knight.

    You got that right. He’s a devil just like Tommy Mottola they allll are! Partying and celebrating(celebrating what?!) with Whitneys dead body above your heads. Seemed ritualistic to me. How convenient.

    I believe Whitney’s death was a ritual in nature. Someone said that Clive gave the order that her body was not to be removed until after midnight and who knows what ceremony was performed somewhere in the midst of that party while her body lay dead. I wonder if she knew that her time had come? The note that she passed to Brandy wasn’t just happen stance. When Brandy was asked about the note, she clasped her hands together. The gesture known in the Masonic order that speaks, “I’ll never reveal the secret”. Hollywood…(smh) I wouldn’t take it for the 800 mill Clive is supposedly worth.
