I recently finished Rock On by Dan Kennedy. It was a quick and witty read. Follow Dan’s growth from idolizing rock stars to working at Atlantic Records to ultimately being laid off. This book really opens up the commercialization of the record industry, and if you think about the events Dan describes, you can plainly see how this industry spoon feeds you what they want you to hear, and how it is all about money. The surprising part of the book is the disclosure of the amount of money that passes through the execs pockets.
