You might remember Tommy James from a little band called Tommy James and The Shondells. James has 23 gold singles, 9 platinum albums and over 100 million records sold worldwide.
On June 28, 2011, James sat down with Valerie Smaldone at 92nd Street Y for discussion about his life and career as documented in his autobiography, Me, the Mob, and the Music. Released in 2010, the autobiography covers his relationship with Morris Levy, head of Roulette Records and front for the Genovese crime family; the pressure to make hit records; and his battle with prescription drugs, alcohol and recovery.
