The first full account of legendary music producer Neil Bogart’s life and meteoric career.

Neil Bogart was the founder of Casablanca Records and made the top acts of all 70’s music’s defining genres: stadium rock with KISS, disco with Donna Summer & the Village People, and funk with George Clinton’s Parliament-Funkadelic. Written by his close nephew, who draws extensively on family archives and anecdotes, the book will capture all the glitz and glamour of Bogart's disco empire. Bogart literally brought KISS with him out to LA where they had a long but contentious relationship. He had a perhaps too close relationship with Donna Summer, and turned both the Village People and Parliament into superstars. Bogart died of cancer in 1982, but his influence on music reverberates to this day. The man who would become a mega music mogul came from the projects of Brooklyn, New York and an abusive home. Bogart’s is a story of redemption, of making it big, and ultimately, of a dream come true. He succumbed in part to the excesses of his triumphs.
This account, the first complete Bogart biography, is full of exclusive information and interviews about Neil’s life along with family archives and photos.
