Présentation de l'éditeur

Last of the Red Hot Poppas is the down-to-earth autobiography of entertainer/author…Tito Luv and yes, this is a story about sex, drugs and rock n’ roll. Yet, these tales from his youth were much more than just that. In fact, it’s about a “Bad Pappytucker’s Fifty Shades of Gray,” in between hectic travels and exhausting meetings with power brokers. After all, the world of entertainment, the industry that’s known for crushing dreams, is not a picnic. This is “The Real World!” Last of the Red Hot Poppas showcases true events from the 1960’s and 70’s, describing the difficulties of forming and operating your own band in a professional manner. It was a very special “period in time” when Baby Boomers enjoyed America’s historical music era, which made a big impression on citizens from both sides of the tracks. IF…you’ve ever appreciated reading exceptional material where each word is savored, this is the book for you! IF…you can mentally visualize your existence in the middle of chaotic entertainment happenings, this is the book for you.

Tito Luv asked me to review his book and I have to admit that I was really excited about it. I am a huge fan of rock music from the 60s and 70s and the promotional materials suggested that this was a book about a legendary Hispanic band from that era called “The House of Tito Luv”. I had not heard of this band before but they sounded interesting and I couldn't wait to learn more about them. Then, my copy of “The Last of the Red Hot Poppas” arrived in the mail and I saw that this book was something quite different from what I expected.
“The Last of...” is a self-published autobiography by Tito Luv. Like many self-published books, this one is in desperate need of editing. Mr. Luv tells a lot of the same jokes, makes the same points, and uses the same phrases over and over again throughout the book. His word choices, grammar, and sentence structure are also very poor, as in this example: “There's always a new teaching of enlightenment to discover and it's necessary that we continue learning such teachings until the day we die; especially, for those planning to build a career in entertainment or any other industry as far as that is concerned.”
Then, there is the grandiose role that Mr. Luv takes in this book. He writes it as if he is a high-level insider in the entertainment industry with significant credentials and a tremendous amount of influence over others. He repeatedly states “So, you want to form your own band, huh?” and then follows it up with seasoned insights, such as “The show must go on,” “There is no business like show business,” and “There is no such thing as a free lunch.” He often punctuates these statements with an arrogant “Got it?,” as if he is speaking to endlessly ignorant and loyal students who are sitting at his feet, eager for his pearls of wisdom.
There is no end to the amount of praise that Mr. Luv has for himself and his accomplishments, as this quote and many, many others suggest: “Breathing life's independence while entertaining both friends and strangers with my very, very best, made it all worth it. Yes, it does! Therefore, a professionally recognized leader, an aggressive stand-out achiever, a deserving veteran possessing heralded abilities, all may end up standing on center stage absorbing musical chemistry's excellence.”
Despite Mr. Luv's relentless self-flattery, however, it doesn't take long to realize that he was merely the leader of a cover band that played in a string of restaurants and hotel lounges in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia for about nine years. His peak moment appears to be when his band got hired to open for Sha Na Na one night (essentially his “Puppet show and Spinal Tap” moment). That's it.
I looked online and I couldn't find any audio or video of The House of Tito Luv, not even on Mr. Luv's own website. It is hard to imagine that “a deserving veteran possessing heralded abilities” would somehow perform for nine years to appreciative audiences without leaving behind a single newspaper article, studio recording, concert video, or even bootleg recording to show for his efforts.
The bottom line is that it appears Mr. Luv wrote an extremely flattering autobiography that he published himself in an attempt to convince us that he is “the real deal.” There is absolutely no evidence, however, to back up his claims. I also suspect that he wrote some of the flattering reviews about his book on Amazon.com because they tend to basically re-state the materials from his promotional materials and they are written with the same poor grammar and sentence structure that mar his book. It is easy to use the internet to become a legend in your own mind. Now, if you'll excuse me, I am about to write an extremely flattering self-published autobiography about my years as president of Guatemala...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Sex, drugs and rock & roll along with the business of running a rock band 29 juin 2014
Par Charles Ashbacher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book is first and foremost about sex, drugs and rock & roll as practiced by Tito Luv and his band, "The House of Tito Luv." It is billed as an autobiography, but it is generally reserved for the years when Luv was the leader of an up-and-coming rock band (60s and 70s). At the very end, Luv brings the reader up to date about what has been happening in his life since those exciting times.
A companion theme to the S, D, R & R is his experiences as a businessman, booking performances, managing the money, and massaging the at times childish and arrogant egos of the people in his band. Luv describes a lot of sexual action; he claims that he had sex with 125 different women during the "House of Tito Luv" era. The descriptions are somewhat explicit but not graphic and one aspect of the book that is surprising is the mildness of the language. As wild a time as Luv and his followers had, he uses very few swear words in the book, it seems clear that he deliberately toned it down. It is hard to believe that the members of the band did not talk a lot rougher than Luv relates.
The story gets repetitive after about 100 pages, while the performance locations and the women he is having sex with change; the story itself really does not. Members of the band argue over petty things that he must smooth over, his audience rocked to their sound and he experiences amazing sexual experiences with intelligent, confident and sexy women that put out without tying strings.
The book could also have been better edited; there are several instances of the wrong words being used, although they would generally pass a simple spell check. For example, on page 27 Luv starts out describing an encounter with a woman named "Becky." However, for two-thirds of page 28 she is "Betsy" before becoming "Becky" again on page 29. Small errors, but ones that even a minimally competent editor would catch.
This book describes the wild life and times of a man, his band and the groupies that followed them. They lived life to the max and lived to tell about it, which is what Luv does in this book. On page 341 Luv also says that it is the first volume of a two-volume set.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I highly recommend this book to all ages 28 juin 2014
Par Samuel Boulton - Publié sur Amazon.com

If you're a member of the "Baby-Boomer" generation, you'll enjoy reading this book. Mr. Luv gives insight into what it was like to be a world-class entertainer and musician, performing live on stage and what really happens after the performance is over. It involves straight talk about sex, drugs and groupies...very interesting reading. Tito doesn't just stop there, you'll appreciate his humor as you journey through the excitement of yesteryears. I highly recommend this book to all ages.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Tito Luv is the Real Deal - If you want to Form A Rock Band & Make Money, READ THIS BOOK! 27 juin 2014
Par Damian Konopka - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Tito's book had me hooked by the first few paragraphs: "While fresh ideas can be considered holy, don't forget one of life's true blessings is to recognize reliable, trustworthy talent and the sooner, the better." So true!

Luv goes on to spin such a deeply knowledgeable & engrossing story about the music industry for up-and-coming bands that you can't help but be drawn in if you have any intentions of getting your own band some fame. The natural high of performing, they joy of getting paid for doing something you love, the partying, the groupies! Whew...

You will not be disappointed with all the "Titoisms" in the book and the sage advice Luv dispenses page after page. "The Last of The Red Hot Poppas" should be required reading for anyone interested in breaking into the music industry, at any level. Read it twice, take notes, and thank Luv for saving you tons of time and money.
