This book chronicles the rise of the music business from a spattering of underground, counterculture groups into a multi-billion dollar industry. Most of the individuals highlighted in the book were determined to make money and often appear to be in the right place at the right time. While the book may not have the most positive and rewarding message about the success of these individuals, it is an insightful and truthful expose into the behind-the-scenes deals that were made to create music stars. I wrote a longer review at The Wheel's Still In Spin.
