Hey folks, yours truly decided to use the opportunity, while in Los Angeles for Grammy Week, to grab an interview for you all with the highly respected Music/Entertainment lawyer Don Passman. If you are in the music industry and you do not own Don Passman’s “All You Need to Know About the Music Business,’ you probably should go buy a copy, like yesterday. It is a good book and a great starting point, especially for emerging artists.
I hope you all enjoy the video. It is short, sweet and to the point, if I may say so myself. I have also added a video clip so you appreciate the rock star lawyer that he is.
Happy Friday! It’s been hectic for me, travels et. al included, but I promise to return refreshed next Monday.
Stay blessed people.
