'Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives'
Whitney, Aretha, Aerosmith, Christina, Springsteen, Santana, Janis, the Dead, Barry Manilow, the Notorious B.I.G. – this is just a sliver of the artists who owe part or all of their careers to Clive Davis. Chris Perkel's portrait of the man behind the music looks at the record industry godhead's rise, his seminal years at Columbia, his founding of Arista and his role in shaping modern pop, rock and hip-hop. It ain't subtitled The Soundtrack of Our Lives for nothing, people. DF
