Goodman's book

WRITE, SAID FRED: Plenty of buzzing in label executive suites over Fred Goodman’s upcoming book Fortune’s Fool, the sequel to his critically acclaimed 1997 tome Mansion on the Hill. Advance galleys are being vetted intently by those included in the book, which essentially traces the last 20 years of the music business, with Edgar Bronfman Jr. as its focal point. The book recounts the death of Warner’s Steve Ross in 1992, precipitating a tectonic shift in power that saw “Efer” acquire Universal from Matsushita and subsequently merge it with PolyGram, then further expand his empire with the extrication of Interscope from the Warner system.
