No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. . . . . . . . Kathryn Lineberger, founder of the New York band Fluffer, has learned a lot about the music industry, and she shares her hard-won wisdom in this frank, funny step-by-step guidebook that covers everything you need to know about forming your band - and dealing with the inevitable personnel changes; getting the instruments and equipment you need; (i.e., shopping, scrounging, borrowing, and begging); writing songs...and how to deal with those pesky 'creative differences'; dealing with managers, lawyers, producers, engineers, and mixers; avoiding mistakes, rip-offs, and traumas of all kinds; recording your music - from the rehearsal tape to the demo to the real thing, and putting together a package for club bookers - and promoting your shows.. . . . . . . Many dream of making successful careers in the world of rock music, but too few guides impart the basics of how to do it. Lineberger's title covers everything from forming a band and handling changes to dealing with managers, producers, and possible rip-off artists. The practical details packed into this guide make it absolutely essential reading for any beginner. -- Midwest Book Review
