Publisher's Summary

After almost four decades in the music business, David Foster - producer, arranger, songwriter, performer - is ready to speak.

In his compelling and outspoken memoir, Foster shares incredible stories from his years of working with music superstars, including Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Natalie Cole, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Josh Groban, Michael Buble, and many others. Foster offers rare glimpses of the musical icons at work and shares his secrets for success in the fickle music industry.

At its heart, though, Hitman is the story of a boy with perfect pitch who grew up to become one of the most influential music forces of our time.

    Story
    "Truly written in David Foster's own words"
    Would you listen to Hitman again? Why?

    I felt that i really comprehended and visualized the entire auto-biography. However, It was a really enjoyable listen, and i feel the lessons and experiences will have newfound effects on me as I age and grow over time.


    What about David Foster’s performance did you like?

    I liked how real David is. He says it like it is. He doesn't try to sugar coat or make things a big deal. He just tells you his story the way he remembers it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    When I first started reading the book a couple years ago, I completely stopped after one of the 1st few chapters. The chapter referenced David's ability to have Perfect Pitch. He could hear a note on the piano and know exactly what it was.

    After reading that, i vowed to learn perfect pitch and start reading again once i've figured it out.

    I haven't mastered perfect pitch yet, but I did come up with a new device that can train perfect pitch, and now i just need to prototype it.

    After coming up with the idea for "Pitch Blocks", I listened to the book from start to finish in just a couple sittings. It gave me all the inspiration i needed to finish building my concept and start training myself to have perfect pitch.
