ID: 978067974377

In 1964, on the brink of the British Invasion, the music business in America shunned rock and roll. There was no rock press, no such thing as artist management -- literally no rock-and-roll business. Today the industry will gross over $20 billion. How did this change happen?From the moment Pete Seeger tried to cut the power at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival debut of Bob Dylan''s electric band, rock''s cultural influence and business potential have been grasped by a rare assortment of ambitious and farsighted musicians and businessmen. Jon Landau took calls from legendary producer Jerry Wexler in his Brandeis dorm room and went on to orchestrate Bruce Springsteen''s career. Albert Grossman''s cold-eyed assessment of the financial power at his clients'' fingertips made him the first rock manager to blaze the trail that David Geffen transformed into a superhighway. Dylan''s uncanny ability to keep his manipulation of the business separate from his art and reputation prefigured the savvy -- and increasingly cynical -- professionalism of groups like the Eagles.Fred Goodman, a longtime rock critic and journalist, digs into the contradictions and ambiguities of a generation that spurned and sought success with equal fervor. The Mansion on the Hill, named after a song title used by Hank Williams, Neil Young, and Bruce Springsteen, breaks new ground in our understanding of the people and forces that have shaped the music.From the Hardcover edition.

ID: 20645648278

[EAN: 9780679743774], Neubuch, [PU: Random House USA Inc, United States], Music|Business Aspects, Music|Rock, Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1965, Bob Dylan s watershed electric performance at the Newport Folk Festival launched a musical revolution: rock musicuntil then a pop, essentially trivial, medium - was transformed overnight into the personal art form of a generation in search of authenticity and values, a generation that swore itself forever different. Thirty years later, rock music is the backbone of a $20 billion global business, its celebrity performers key assets for multinational entertainment firms like Time Warner and Sony. Rock and roll was supposed to change the world. How did the world change rock and roll? The Mansion on the Hill is the story of that seduction, a social and cultural history unlike any other book on rock or the entertainment business. The Mansion on the Hill - a song title used successively by Hank Williams, Bruce Springsteen, and Neil Young to suggest very different things - chronicles the contradictions and ambiguities of a generation that spurned and sought success with equal passion. Fred Goodman, a music critic and entertainment-industry reporter for the past fifteen years, masterfully explores the gray gulf between populism and popularity. Both an indictment of misspent passion and a hopeful search for those who have risen but remained true, The Mansion on the Hill measures a generation against the yardstick of its own aspirations and dreams.
