Check out the video below. It’s a little bit of music wisdom from Howard Bloom. Bloom could be the most important figure in the 70s/80s music industry that you’ve never heard about. Billy Joel calls Bloom THE public relations guy if you needed your image authenticated to the masses.
…With his company, the Howard Bloom Organization, which he founded in the seventies, he had successfully transformed and launched the careers of many rock stars, including John Mellencamp, Kiss, Hall and Oates, AC/DC, Run DMC”.
Those are some huge stars, and they are all still around. Interesting eh? To add to his impressive resume, Bloom has also written three books, The Genius of the Beast, Global Brain, and The Lucifer Principle.
These books generalize and extend his ideas about what makes rock and roll artists successful to human nature. He founded the International Paleopsychology Project, an Internet group “to study the development of the universe from its conception to the present”. (More here)
So, basically Howard Bloom is the coolest dude you’ve never had a chance to hang out with. I ordered all of his books and I’ll be posting about them as soon as they’re read. Check out the clip below.
