Inside you will uncover some little-known facts about the industry, including:How a formula for writing hit songs in the 1900s helped create 50,000 of the best-known songs of all time.How infighting in the American pre-war music industry shut down traditional radio and created an opening for country music, race records and rocknroll.How Jewish immigrants and black jazz musicians dancing cheek-to-cheek created a template for all popular music that followed.How rock tours became the biggest, quickest, sleaziest and most profitable ventures the music industry has ever seen.After reading Ta-Ra-Ra-Boom-De-Ay, youll never listen to music in the same way again.
