The highly-acclaimed one-volume insider history of the whole damn music business.
     Welcome to the music business, a world of greed, corruption, self-interest and fun...
    This is the ultimate insider history of how popular music has evolved, not just as a creative industry, but as a business that has made people rich beyond their wildest dreams. From the printing of sheet music and piano rolls to the world of downloads and streaming, Ta-Ra-Ra-Boom-De-Ay is stuffed full of fascinating anecdotes -- but it is also a seriously insightful exploration of the relationship between creativity and the money that can be made from it, by a man whose own career spans six decades; the legendary Simon Napier-Bell.
SIMON NAPIER-BELL has been the manager of The Yardbirds, Marc Bolan, Japan and Wham! He is also the author of You Don't Have to Say You Love Me, Black Vinyl, White Powder, and I'm Coming to Take You to Lunch about his time managing Wham! and taking them to perform in Communist China, the first western pop act to do so.
