Clive Davis Comes Out
Clive Davis' new memoir, The Soundtrack of My Life, is full of inside stories from throughout his famed career. But the biggest revelation is a personal one: For the first time, the 80-year-old record executive discusses his "bisexual life."
Davis, who has been married and divorced twice, has never before publicly addressed his sexuality. In a candid five-page section toward the end of the book, due in stores today, he writes that he first had a sexual encounter with a man during "the era of Studio 54."
Rest assured, all the names you know and love sing and dance across these pages. Here’s Janis Joplin giving us a piece of her heart at Monterey. There’s Carlos Santana burning up the frets at Woodstock. And, look, it’s Aretha Franklin, for whom Clive plows an ingenious way out of the ’60s and into the ’80s.
Naturally, we also see Whitney Houston, in both happier and sadder times. MORE HERE & HERE
