Description

Seymour Stein is America's greatest record man. Not only has he signed and nurtured more important artists than anyone alive, over sixty years in the game, but he's still the hippest label head, travelling the globe in search of the next big thing. Since the late fifties, Stein's been wherever it's happening: Billboard, Tin Pan Alley, The British Invasion, CBGB, Studio 54, Danceteria, the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, the CD crash. Along that winding path, Stein discovered and broke out a skyline full of stars: Madonna, The Ramones, Talking Heads, Depeche Mode, Madonna, The Smiths, The Cure, Ice-T, Lou Reed, Seal, and many others. Brimming with hilarious scenes and big personalities, Siren Song's bigger story is about modernity in motion, and the slow acceptance of diversity in America - thanks largely to daring pop music. Including both the high and low points in his life, The Song touches on everything from Stein's discovery of Madonna to his wife Linda's violent death. Seymour Stein is a legend. Sung from the heart, Siren Song will etch his story in stone.
