The Story of a Legend
Howard Bloom is an American author who worked as a music publicist in the 1970s and 1980s for legendary artists including Prince, Billy Joel and REO Speedwagon. His prophetic insight as the music industry’s go-to publicist helped catapult countless artists into stardom.
To name a few vivid achievements, it was Howard Bloom who substantially increased public awareness of music icons like Bob Marley, Aerosmith, Michael Jackson, Prince, Paul Simon, AC/DC, Billy Idol, Joan Jett, Queen and Run DMC, contributing to their success within the industry.
Everything changed rapidly for Howard after suffering (and surviving) a devastating illness — chronic fatigue syndrome, which unexpectedly transformed him into a theorist of everything to do with human beings. Having retired from his position as one of the most sought-after and respected publicists in the history of music, Howard Bloom decided to devote the rest of his life to science. For example, he developed a fuller understanding of the cosmos and came up with various philosophical concepts in an attempt to reach the darkest depths of the human soul, as he likes to say.
Since Howard Bloom has proven to be quite an influential figure, the public has had a hard time accepting his retirement from his long career as a publicist. However, an enthusiastic group of people, heavily inspired by the exciting story of the American author, founded the Howard Bloom Institute.
