We hit the Autumn Equinox on Monday, but industry lips are still flapping about a pair of luminaries who blazed through the summer—Republic heavy hitter Monte Lipman and Recording Academy Board Chairman Harvey Mason Jr. People are also chattering about the one and only Clive Davis, whose doc is streaming on Netflix, and unseasonably hot Caroline chief Jacqueline Saturn, while Jon Platt is reunited with RiRi, and it feels so good.
