I just picked up a copy of the Tommy James autobiography Me the Mob and the Music: One Helluva Ride with Tommy James and the Shondells. I haven't had a chance to read any of it yet but one of the dust jacket blurbs caught my eye,

Written with the cinematic vision and hard-driving pace, Me the Mob and the Music tells the story of music icon Tommy James and his climb up the music industry's slippery ladder. His personal failures within these pages are just as insightful as his triumphs— Josh Osher, Broadway producer of the Jersey Boys.

Now I'm not saying that James' book is being developed as a Broadway musical and I certainly don't want to start any rumors. But I know of at least one mega-hit show that could also be titled Me the Mob and the Music if it wasn't already titled Jersey Boys.
