How to Be a Pop Idol

Aimed at would-be pop idols who have the songs and the band but not the know-how, this guide tells you what really happens inside the music business. It explains what exactly a record company does, who the main players are, how the retailers work, and the ins and outs of music publishing. It also explains in detail the murky world of A&R, such as how young acts attract the attention of an A&R department, what A&R executives look for, and what drives them. It tells you who's in charge, how the law works, and how you can get into the charts—all in a simple, jargon-free fashion.
