The award-winning documentary (produced by Ridley Scott) about Epiphany Interviewee, Clive Davis, is out!
Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives is now available on iTunes for streaming and/or downloading. I’ve seen it on the big screen and it is so much fun. Watching this film, I was transported in time and and had an epiphany about how music can trigger such powerful memories and there really is a soundtrack to our lives, whether we’ve really thought about it that way or not.
You also get somewhat of a history lesson on the evolution of American music and music business from this film. Clive has had so much to do with all genres of music since the 70’s. I know Clive personally and didn’t even know about all the music and artists he was behind. The movie is a great, fun, quick way to get some background and history on rock, pop, hip hop and even country music. Plus, it’s funny, moving, full of music icons (Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, Whitney Houston, Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel, Alicia Keyes, to name a few) and you get a lot of insight about how to live a fulfilling life by doing what you love and being grateful for every minute of any good fortune that comes your way.
And even more fun (for me anyway) is when Clive talks about the life-changing moment he shared with me when he saw Janice Joplin at the Monterey Music Festival in ’69 and you get to see the footage from the festival and his “preppy clothes “ (aka: a white tennis sweater) he talks about wearing in it! Clive is an excellent example of building his life upon the genre of epiphany that I call the Callings. If you want to read about his greatest epiphany in life, go here.
Clive is going to be appearing Wednesday, NOV. 1 on “Good Morning America” (ABC) with anchor Michael Strahan during the 8:45 A.M. (Eastern) segment. And on Friday, NOV. 3 on the “Jimmy Fallon: The Tonight Show” (NBC) on Friday night (11/3). So set your DVRs or watch it later online and definitely check it out on iTunes – and there is also a soundtrack you can get from the Soundtrack Of Our Lives…of course. Thank you, Clive!
