Tommy Mottola’s new memoir, “Hitmaker: The Man and His Music”, would have you believe that he’s a sensitive, quality guy, but Wayne Rosso isn’t buying it at all. Not that we really needed his professional opinion on this, really. Anyone that feels the need to include excerpts from other people about how great they are is probably more scary than sensitive. Via Wayne’s World:
To make matters worse, Mottola uses a device in the book that he calls “Voices”. At the end of each chapter he has solicited platitudes from friends and former colleagues. It’s like the old story of the narcissist who’s in a conversation with someone and after going on and on about his accomplishments suddenly says, “I’m sick of talking about me. So what do you think about me”? In one chapter the “voices” of Gloria Estefan and Celine Dion gush over how sensitive Tommy is.
