Former "Time Out" music editor John Collis has interviewed industry insiders and musicians to bring you the best advice on navigating the pitfalls of the business today. His guide also includes listings of all the contacts you'll need, from record companies to pluggers and publicists, top agents to studios, as well as the distilled wisdom of, among others, John Peel, the legendary manager Ed Bicknell, up-and-coming band "Brothernature", DJ Charlie Gillett and the Musician's Union. Whatever your ambitions and dreams, this book can help make them reality.
