I read about Clive Davis and Barry Weiss yesterday. I think that Clive is getting a little old and he is staying with BMG as an executive. I think Barry Weiss is more down to earth. I remember when Clive announced that Gavin DeGraw was the next Alicia Keys. That never happened. And I heard that they scrapped Jennifer Hudson's new album which I believe Clive was supervising. Maybe he's out of touch. I heard about Danny and he had melanoma for 3 years.
