Me, the Mob, and the Music tells the intimate story of the complex and sometimes terrifying relationship between the bright-eyed, sweet-faced blonde musician from the heartland and the big, bombastic, brutal bully from the Bronx, who hustled, cheated, and swindled his way to the top of the music industry. It is also the story of this swaggering, wildly creative era of rock 'n' roll---when the hits kept coming and payola and the strong arm tactics of the mob were the norm---and what it was like, for better or worse, to be in the middle of it.

What a ride - excellent story, well told
I played Tommy James music as a DJ in the 60's. Who knew? I enjoyed the ride and, for me, this was a page-turner. I like Tommy's sincerity and directness. He does not "bad-mouth" anyone, and is open about his mistakes. A great listen for those interested in the music business - especially from this era.

An excellent listen!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes - it's a great look at part of the history of pop music that isn't often talked about and I read and listen to lots of music books.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
Tommy Jame's openness to talking about his success and his failures was very refreashing.
Have you listened to any of David Colacci’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
His reference to how he treated those in his personal life vs. his career.
