Clive Davis Still Making Hits At Sony Bmg
by Staff

Beloved music mogul Clive Davis has taken back an influential post at Sony Bmg Music Group, just months after he was stripped of his title as chairman and Ceo of the company.

Davis, 76, became one of the most revered men in music through his tenure at the label - where he was largely responsible for the careers of Janis Joplin, Pink Floyd, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel and Whitney Houston.

After stepping down, the legendary producer was reportedly installed as the company's chief creative officer.

But according to the New York Post, the legendary producer's work with recent breakout stars such as Dreamgirls star Jennifer Hudson and pop sensation Leona Lewis - who became the first British female solo artist in history to debut at number one in the U.S. album charts in April (08) - has prompted label bosses to rethink his staying power.

U.S. label group boss Rob Stringer has since asked Davis to talk with executives at Columbia Records and Epic Records about working on projects for some of the artists on their labels, including Billy Joel and Harry Connick Jr., according to reports.

A source tells the newspaper, "Sony is turning to Clive as a resource because there's no great artist and repertoire guys there anymore."

A spokesman for Columbia Records added: "We'd love to have the opportunity to work with Clive and are discussing various projects." (c) WENN
