Scott Storch: One More Bush-Era Music Douche Gets Flushed Down The Can
There's a great article about the professional demise of scumbag producer extraordinaire Scott Storch on CNN.com, called "The Top Producer Who Hit The Skids."
Here's the gist of it all:
Nowadays, Scott Storch, 34, is missing in action. He owes over $500,000 in real estate taxes and had a warrant out for his arrest when he failed to show up in court in a child-support case last month. He has not had a top 10 hit in three years. He still has his waterfront marble mansion, but his lawyer, Guy Spiegelman, says Storch is attempting to refinance it after a "catastrophic occurrence this year" resulting from "mismanagement." Storch no longer works with his old manager or publicist. He hasn't talked to either of his children in months.Gee, his uncomparable arrogance aside, what do you think could possibly have killed his career: Paris Hilton's album or Brooke Hogan's?
Replete with tragic details and bad behavior, the ballad of Scott Storch may be the swan song of the bling era, a riches-to-rags tale of excess, poor decisions and a hobbled music industry.
We do have Scott to thank for Chris Brown's "Run It!", though. That was a good jam... you know, three years ago and all.
