About the Author
The acclaimed Horse Doggin’ and 1974 chronicled Dave Morrell’s rise from rock fan to warehouse worker to Warner Bros. Records promo man, and his friendship with John Lennon. In Volume 3 of his memoirs, 45 R.P.M. (Recollections per Minute), Dave hops from the Bunny to the Nipper (RCA Records), where he works the last record of Elvis’ life, takes home a champagne glass from Rod Stewart after a night spent swilling bubbly with him and Britt Ekland, introduces Dolly Parton to Big Apple radio programmers and meets Robert DeNiro and Martin Scorsese on the set of Taxi Driver. Plugging hits and burning through his expense account, Morrell adds 20th Century Fox Records and Arista to his resume. Lou Reed offers him a joint in the back of a limo – then rats him out to label honcho Clive Davis for smoking pot! Dave scores a win with Patti Smith Group, getting Top 40 giant WABC to add their single, and helps Melissa Manchester chart the biggest hit of her career – with a song she never wanted to record. Clive goes berserk over low employee attendance at an Ice Castles screening and the chilly reception Alan Parsons Project’s Pyramid receives, and Morrell gets an offer from the Fab Four’s label.
