MACHAT ON HIS SHAPING OF BOBBY’S SOLO CAREER

“My Dad (Marty Machat) and I handled Phil Spector. When I oversaw the production of ‘Don’t Be Cruel’, I sought to invoke the same spirit that Spector had created in the 60s – teenage angst, plain and simple. The single ‘Don’t Be Cruel’ has both my name and my father’s name credited on it as the management. He died shortly before the release of the disc. It was my tribute to him.”

BOBBY WROTE “MY PREROGATIVE” AT THEN-MANAGER’S HOUSE

Steven Machat: “The song ‘My Prerogative’ was written in my house as Bobby didn’t go to see “Beetlejuice” with me that Saturday afternoon. ‘Get busy’, the words he shouts at the start, are what my then wife’s mother yelled at Bobby as he stayed home to put lyrics to the instrumental version of the song Teddy Riley gave us.”

BUT HE SHOCKED THE HELL OUTTA US WHEN HE REVEALED THE INCIDENT THAT MADE HIM QUIT…

EX MANAGER REVEALS SHOCKING MOMENT WITH BOBBY’S FAMILY

Steven Machat said he quit after the success of the “Don’t Be Cruel” album and that the final straw involved prostitution, jail, Bobby Brown, his mother, and sister:

“Bobby was unable to duplicate the success of that record [“Don’t Be Cruel”] because the team that did it was gone, me included. I left because I awoke from the dream. I was representing and promoting a fraud. A fraud that lived on the fumes of the dust he smoked and the lines he inhaled. I got disgusted with myself. I thought I could mould him, instead he moulded me. When I quit it was to regain my honor which my ego had got in front of. The last straw was when his mother called the night I got back to LA from my Dad’s funeral in NY, demanding that I bail her daughter out of jail. She was arrested for prostitution.”

“Instead of becoming an example and role model, Bobby stayed on the floor, constantly looking for his next high. I must add, Whitney was worse than him when they met. She destroyed him as much as he destroyed her. They lived in the shadows of the light.”

Machat never mentioned Bobby’s sister by name, but as far as we know, he has two of them…

RECORD LABEL DIDN’T BELIEVE IN BOBBY ACCORDING TO MACHAT

Steven Machat on developing Bobby’s style: “The suit on the front cover was from Versace. My friend. I wanted Bobby to be different than the rest of the kids of his age. Girls like uniforms and this album was set up for the girls, just like the artists of the 60’s – another lesson I learnt from Spector.”

THE LABEL DIDN’T BELIEVE IN BOBBY’S DON’T BE CRUEL ALBUM AT FIRST

Machat: “It was initially only released on vinyl and tape as MCA did not believe in it. But I knew kids needed something more than the majors were giving. Even today, the majors will not survive without the indies feeding and breaking artists – the indies create and the majors perpetuate. New Edition were an indie band to begin with. In fact all my successful acts started as indies. Majors sell what exist, it is hard for them to get the monies to create what is really new. They couldn’t care less about the art. It is all about a bottom line. They want sales and do not care what they sell as long as it sells. The prophets all start in the street.”
