Uncle Al

02023-09-20 | History | 4 comments

My friend, and product manager at Epic Records, Al Masocco, had a birthday recently and I called him to wish him a happy birthday. He will be inducted into the Niagara Falls Music Hall of Fame on 15. November. Niagara Falls this year and surely Cleveland next. Congrats Al.

Mr. Masocco’s 28-plus years in the music/marketing world at CBS/Sony Music have given him a unique opportunity and the rare creative experience of working on strategies for artists such as The Rolling Stones, The Clash, Jeff Beck, Pink Floyd, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Paul McCartney, Michael Jackson, Tammy Wynette, Bruce Springsteen, Korn, Ottmar Liebert, Oasis and festival and tour compilations such as Woodstock 99 and The Family Values releases to name a few.
Over the last five years with The Firm, Mr. Masocco has been given the opportunity to explore and broaden his marketing and promotional playing field through working on development strategies for Enrique Iglesias, Limp Bizkit, Dixie Chicks, Michelle Branch, Linkin Park, Jennifer Lopez, Audioslave, Puddle of Mudd, Kelly Clarkson, Snoop Dogg, Dean Martin and The Doors estates, etc.

      really is a great photo

      (al is looks like someone i knew once….funny how some people can look like another – often wonder how he is doing)

      being a musician -performing all the time
      creating part i get – it’s the performing,… i don’t get.
      outside of the obvious – need income –
      why perform?

      seems like i have hit another wall.
      can’t seem to get the “plan” together – without it – idea is dead.
      don’t know why i can’t get it through my head !

      can’t seem to turn a vision into reality …with steps etc….just stuck – i am.

    When I read Uncle Al I expected the Jourgensen guy not a suited label exec. *sigh*
