About this title


"Frankie, give this envelope to Mr. Passano when you see him tomorrow," club manager and ever-vigilant doorman Jerry D'iorfio said. The envelope was sealed but I could tell there was a great deal of cash in it. I'm just the drummer with the band, and now suddenly I am making some sort of delivery to the syndicate. My mother would have been proud. "Don't worry," Jerry laughed. "We trust you. After all, you're a paesano, am I right?" He suddenly grew serious. "Plus, you pull any fast one and, bing bada bing, you're history." Then Jerry laughed again. Frankie Severino wasn't laughing. When the FBI and IRS investigated him four years later, they weren't laughing either. Frank Catanzano provides an irreverent and often funny look at life working with members of organized crime who ran many of the clubs in Pittsburgh. Based on true events he has taken great pains to disguise the people, places and things in this tell-all story of how the wise guys ruled through intimidation and threats. Drummer for the Mob is a no holds barred, behind the scenes look at the sex, drugs and rock and roll that were pervasive during the disco years, told through the lens of social values and the music genres of the period. Drummer for the Mob is Saturday Night Fever meets Good Fellas.
