Book Review: “Einstein, Michael Jackson & Me: A Search For the Soul in the Power Pits of Rock And Roll” by Addison Coleman


Penned by one of the finest minds of our times, Howard Bloom, “Einstein, Michael Jackson & Me: A Search For Soul in the Power Pits of Rock And Roll”, is a supreme compilation of in-depth stories and experiences encountered by the greatest public relations guru on earth. Howard Bloom helped launch the careers and campaigns of some of the most illuminated artists to have ever lived including: Billy Joel, Bette Midler, Prince, Lionel Richie, Aerosmith, Bob Marley, Run DMC, ZZ Top, Queen, Billy Idol, Grand Master Flash, Alice Cooper, Styx, Joan Jett, Chaka Khan, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, and over 100 more including Michael Jackson.

I bring up Michael Jackson because before reading this book I didn’t really know or care about him. True he was talented, but was shadowed by conspiracy theories, vast rumors, and a lot of bad press that followed him to his grave. Honestly, I wasn’t phased by the likes of Michael Jackson either way. After delving in to the stories and emotions relayed by Bloom I now wish I had known him and I wish that I had paid more attention. I became intrigued with Michael and felt an emotional bond towards him….almost like a fan girl.

Besides Michael, there were tales of Alice Cooper and how he became what he still is today, punk rocker Billy Idol, ZZ Top, John Mellencamp, and so many others. Each story is an important piece of rock and roll history never before known. It’s like a classified Encyclopedia that holds the key for the most private and secretive stories of the ages. I treated each page with the utmost respect.

Howard Bloom is undeniably one of the greatest writers of our generation. Some of his other books include: “The Lucifer Principle”, “The God Problem: How a Godless Cosmos Creates”, “How I Accidentally Started the Sixties”, “The Mohammed Code”, and others. Bloom captures your interest and then his words hold you hostage until the book is completed…

“Einstein, Michael Jackson & Me: A Search For Soul in the Power Pits of Rock And Roll” is an essential read. It was released on April 23, 2020 via Backbeat Books, with an impressive forward written by rocker Joan Jett. It has a refashioned theme throughout the manuscript of “Finding the Gods inside you”, and how “music is an exchange of human soul.” That in itself is a compelling reason to celebrate the book.
