the ops assertion is incorrect because it assumes that howard has the ability to deep 6 anything anymore.Picture Abe vigoda trying to deep 6 something... its the same thing.howie has negative pull in the industry anymoreIn short: were not in the howard stern game anymore.
That's not how our legal system works. If Abe had Howard's money, he could keep books tied up until the end of time with frivolous lawsuits too.
i can pretty much guarantee gary and/or howard read it while artie was out promoting it in sept/oct last year. Artie did several interviews in newspapers promoting the book and said he would be in studio in october. That never came to pass. He was also promoting how buck wrote the forward. If howard didnt like what it said artie would prob agree to stop the presses. Artie would never bash howard directly, but by disclosing all the times he was high during the show, all the times he lied on air about this or that it reflects really bad on howard. For years everyone was saying artie needed rehab, but howard always said that wasnt his role. On the contrary, howard should have sent artie to rehab AT LEAST once to try to get him clean. At least to show he tried. But he always put the show first and was afraid it would suffer without artie. He was right. The show jumped the shark after the suicide attempt. Artie is gone for good. It all reflects bad on howard. Im convinced he has stopped this book until after he retires.
Artie already disclosed when he was still on the show that he was high most of the time and lied about everything
Odds are the reason for the delay is, he's probably trying to find a publisher for the book. Artie had his book deal for a second book when he was still on the Stern show, a little bit before he got kicked off the show, attempted suicide and was in and out of mental facilities. So odds are, whatever publisher he had signed with, that deal is longer on the table, and any sort of signing bonus had to be returned. Book companies are very rigid with time frames and deadlines. I can't see them waiting around a year or two for him to get his shit together. And honestly, how would Artie go about promoting the book? He's persona non grata on the Stern show. Mainstream Talk shows are probably well aware of how he acted on the Joe Buck show, so that leaves them out. He's mentally incapable of doing a promotion tour/book signing. He could promote it on his own show, but besides maybe 5 people who post on this site, does anyone listen to it? I don't know anyone in my personal life that is even aware that he has a radio show.
So trying to shop a book, by a C level celebrity, who has no sort of public exposure, and isn't fit to promote the thing..... it might take awhile. He might have better luck shopping it as a fiction story. Because I guarantee that most of it is bullshit. Like his bulshit reasoning for stabbing himself, that he's sober, etc, etc...
I'm looking forward to reading the chapters about his amazing sobriety and his true friend and bro Nick.
I'm sure the book got shelved because there was an 80 percent Artie would crash and burn during the crash & burn book tour.
Has Artie whipped his cock out again on the air?
HIGH Artie talking sobriety would be compelling.

Artie mentioned last night that he 'has a book coming out' and is still working with the publishers and editors
Thx for the update. Funny how he was out promoting it last fall for nov release and now he is still working on it. Maybe someone will call him and ask or question him bout it. I still think howard shut down the previous version.
