Me, The Mob And The Music - One Helluva Ride With Tommy James & The Shondells
Author: MOB MONTH 2014 - Legacy Of Organized Crime
You may know Tommy James as the lead singer and musician of the rock and roll group Tommy James & The Shondells who shot to the hot of the charts with major hits "Hanky Panky," "I Think We're Alone Now," "Crystal Blue Persuasion," and "Crimson & Clover," but what you may not know is that the record company that produced Tommy's many hit songs was a front for the Mob. In an intimate video interview broadcast live from Tommy's residence in New York, Tommy will share his stories of virtually growing up in the music industry in the 1960's & 70's when the Mob kept busy with payola schemes, rip-offs of both artists and publishing rights, and strong-arm tactics that are exposed in his book, Me, The Mob And The Music.
