World-renowned music publicist Howard Bloom has just published his seventh, and possibly his most surprising book, Einstein, Michael Jackson & Me: A Search for Soul in the Power Pits of Rock and Roll (Rowman & Littlefield), a book that has leaped to number one on Amazon’s chart of best-selling music business books.
Howard Bloom has been called Einstein, Darwin, Newton, and Freud of the 21st century by Britain’s Channel 4 TV. He’s been published or given lectures at scholarly conferences in twelve fields, from quantum physics, cosmology, and evolutionary biology, to neuroscience, information science, aerospace, and governance. But he’s also been labeled “the greatest press agent that rock and roll has ever known” by Derek Sutton, the former manager of Styx, Ten Years After, and Jethro Tull. Bloom is a scientific thinker who knew nothing about popular music. But he founded the biggest PR firm in the music industry and helped build or sustain the careers of our biggest rock-and-roll legends, including Michael Jackson, Prince, Bob Marley, Bette Midler, Billy Joel, Billy Idol, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, David Byrne, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Queen, Kiss, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Run DMC, ZZ Top, Joan Jett, Chaka Khan, and one hundred more. What was he after? He was on a hunt for the gods inside of you and me. Einstein, Michael Jackson & Me is Bloom’s story—the strange tale of a scientific expedition into the dark underbelly where new myths and movements are made.
