Gateway to a Captivating, Inspiring, Treacherous and Dynamic Industry.
The Musician’s Business and Legal Guide, compiled and edited by Mark Halloran, Esq., has just been published by Routledge, Taylor, and Francis in a new 5thedition.
I spent the last year producing this new edition for Routledge, a large textbook publisher, and the Beverly Hills Bar Association Committee for the Arts. I also produced all editions that were published since 1991.
Like a record producer, a book producer provides a finished, ready-to-print copy to the publisher. I worked closely with Mark Halloran and other authors, cover and interior designer, editors and indexer and got formal permissions for an extensive quotes.
My goal since 1974, when I quit working for Bill Graham’s Fillmore Management, was to help muscians profit from their art. This book (and others that I wrote) helped accomplish it.
