A few years ago, I was invited by Wind-Up records to a showcase featuring one of their new bands. The group never amounted to anything--they were called The Exit and featured one of Edgar Bronfman's kids (the one who's engaged to MIA)--but I'll never forget the evening that followed.
After the gig, Alan and Diana Melzter, the husband-and-wife owners of Wind-Up, invited us back to their apartment on Park Avenue.
When the doors of the private elevator opened on the penthouse, the first thing I saw was a piece of furniture from the home of the recently-murdered Gianni Versace. Hanging on the wall were two mini-Warhols. And that was just the start.
