When I heard my pal and label mate from the past, Tommy James, who has one of the hottest books around, “Me, the Mob, and the Music”, was going to speak at Rutgers University, I was impressed.

Since I did one of the first interviews with Tommy, in which he told stories about Morris Levy and Roulette records that weren’t his book, people including myself aren’t afraid to speak out on the “Mob” any longer. Even John Gotti, Jr. did in an in depth interview on 60 minutes…without fear of retaliation.

My friend, DJ Paul Payton and I have been  creating a series of 10 five minute radio shows with Tommy called, THE TOMMY JAMES COLLEGE OF ROCK AND ROLL KNOWLEDGE! Tommy not only talks about the book, but how his music was created. How they got “that sound on the last chorus of “Crimson and Clover” What was “Crystal Blue Persuasion” really about? How he was “managed” or I should say “mis-managed” in a world where assholes never take a day off!

Here is a sample of what you’ll find in THE TOMMY JAMES COLLEGE OF ROCK AND ROLL KNOWLEDGE! https://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2010/02/09/tommy-james-shocking-new-book-methe-mob-and-the-music/
