    Much has been written about Tommy Mottola, one of the most powerful, visionary, and successful executives in the history of the music industry. He discovered, developed and launched the careers of many superstars, including Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, and Gloria Estefan, and is credited with creating the "Latin Explosion". He has had the privilege of working alongside Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Barbara Streisand, the Dixie Chicks, Pearl Jam, Aerosmith, Tony Bennett, and Ozzy Osbourne, among other music giants.

    Karl J. Wulff says: "Chazz Palminteri should stick to movies."

    What didn’t you like about Chazz Palminteri’s performance?

    Chazz Palminteri delivers an uneven and stilted reading. He frequently mispronounces words, and then switches back and forth between alternate pronunciations in an apparent attempt to resolve his confusion, at our expense. He is constantly placing the the emphasis on the wrong word as though he is incapable of reading a few words ahead in order to grasp the gist of the narrative. The effect is a very stilted and distracting performance. I also thought he laid it on a little too think with the Brooklyn accent. I've heard Tommy Mattola give interviews, and his way of speaking and demeanor does not square with Palminteri's affect here.The insider tidbits are interesting, but Palminteri's performance detracted from what would otherwise have been an enjoyable listen.
