“The funniest, truest book I have read about the music business.”
“There is Nature, forces of Nature – and Susan Hamilton. This book is all three.”
A pioneering music producer describes her adventures in working with some of the biggest artists in showbiz...Growing up, Hamilton trained to become a concert pianist until she decided to go into the jingle business. Her “eagle ears” and perfect pitch served her well...The best parts of this memoir are her recollections of working with big-name stars—Elton John, Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye. Chuck Berry literally held Hamilton’s team hostage until he was paid another $5,000...the author frankly describes some heartbreaking moments, such as her failed marriages and the death of one of her sons.
Hamilton always delivered in her professional career, and she does so again with this book.
A dishy tell-all from a veteran who survived the up-and-down world of the music jingles business.
“It’s a great and very funny book. Susan was in the middle of everything and writes surpassingly well about all of it. Her deep respect for music and musicians is evident. They deserve it and so does she.”
