SS Film Fest: Clive Davis: the Soundtrack of Our Lives

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

A very square and straight young Clive Davis sees Janis Joplin perform at the flower-strewn, marijuana-soaked 1967 Monterey Pop Festival. He is wearing a V neck tennis sweater over white pants. Kind of like showing up at a 1970s Beaver Point Hall dance in a suit! Although he is feeling out of place, he describes “I felt my spine tingle and my arms vibrate,” He’s blown away and describes it as an “epiphany” ~ “I realized this was going to be the future. I could feel it in my bones.” And it was the future, which he helped shape in his more than 50 year career in the music business.
