Un thème qui accompagne le S, D, R & R est ses expériences comme un homme d'affaires, réservation performances, la gestion de l'argent, et le massage de la égos parfois puériles et arrogants du peuple dans son groupe. Luv décrit beaucoup d'action sexuelle; il prétend qu'il avait des relations sexuelles avec 125 femmes différentes au cours de l'ère "Maison de Tito Luv". Les descriptions sont un peu explicite mais pas graphique et un aspect du livre qui est surprenant est la douceur de la langue. Aussi sauvage un temps que Luv et ses disciples avaient, il consomme très peu de gros mots dans le livre, il semble clair qu'il a délibérément atténué vers le bas. Il est difficile de croire que les membres de la bande ne parlent beaucoup plus rude que Luv concerne.
L'histoire devient répétitif au bout d'environ 100 pages, tandis que les emplacements de performance et les femmes qu'il est d'avoir des relations sexuelles avec le changement; l'histoire elle-même ne fait pas vraiment.Lire la suite ›

“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...
My real review goes like this. I read one page. Then skimmed around the book. I was befuddled at how this could have made it through any editor at all. I got this for free and agreed to review it, for better or worse. So it goes, I ended up on the worse side of the coin.
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.
