This amazing compilation features 600 quotations from esteemed musicians and artists who have taken a moment to reflect on their influences, heroes, integrity, performances, and so much more. These gems of hard-won wisdom cover not only the highs of success, money, and fame, but also frankly reveal the lows of missteps and rejection. The shared experiences of heavy-hitters such as George Martin, Tom Petty, Phil Ramone, Brian Wilson, Jack Johnson, k.d. lang, David Foster, and Carlos Santana, to name just a few, can function as both advice for those starting out in the industry and a behind-the-scenes peek for any music fan. This handbook also includes a visual who's who of the music biz with the inclusion of headshots of the artists featured. A celebration of what it means to make music, this collection is a must-have for anyone who has ever hummed a tune or been inspired by an insightful lyric.

To order an electric guitar for my son who lives in a different location was hectic and I'm so glad that we decided to place an order with you versus the other big website. Thank you for your truly professional and caring staff. We definitely will bring more business to you again in the near future. Your kind concern and follow up is highly appreciated. Thank you sooooo much"
