Book Description :

The New York Times bestseller and the definitive portrait of Kurt Cobain--as relevant as ever, as we remember the impact of Cobain on our culture twenty-five years after his death--now with a new preface and an additional final chapter from acclaimed author Charles R. Cross. It has been twenty-five years since Kurt Cobain died by his own hand in April 1994; it was an act of will that typified his short, angry, inspired life. Veteran music journalist Charles R. Cross fuses his intimate knowledge of the Seattle music scene with his deep compassion for his subject in this extraordinary story of artistic brilliance and the pain that extinguished it. Based on more than four hundred interviews; four years of research; exclusive access to Cobain's unpublished diaries, lyrics, and family photos; and a wealth of documentation, Heavier Than Heaven traces Cobain's life from his early days in a double-wide trailer outside of Aberdeen, Washington, to his rise to fame, success, and the adulation of a generation. Charles Cross has written a new preface for this edition, giving readers context for the time in which the book was written, six years after Kurt's death, and reminding everyone how fresh that cultural experience was when the interviews for the book were done. The new final chapter will update the story since, regarding investigations into Cobain's death, Nirvana's induction into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, and how their place in rock history has only risen over the decades.

Book Description :

From the shopping mall to the corner bistro, knockoffs are everywhere in today's marketplace. Conventional wisdom holds that copying kills creativity, and that laws that protect against copies are essential to innovation--and economic success. But are copyrights and patents always necessary? In The Knockoff Economy, Kal Raustiala and Christopher Sprigman provocatively argue that creativity can not only survive in the face of copying, but can thrive. The Knockoff Economy approaches the question of incentives and innovation in a wholly new way--by exploring creative fields where copying is generally legal, such as fashion, food, and even professional football. By uncovering these important but rarely studied industries, Raustiala and Sprigman reveal a nuanced and fascinating relationship between imitation and innovation. In some creative fields, copying is kept in check through informal industry norms enforced by private sanctions. In others, the freedom to copy actually promotes creativity. High fashion gave rise to the very term "knockoff," yet the freedom to imitate great designs only makes the fashion cycle run faster--and forces the fashion industry to be even more creative. Raustiala and Sprigman carry their analysis from food to font design to football plays to finance, examining how and why each of these vibrant industries remains innovative even when imitation is common. There is an important thread that ties all these instances together--successful creative industries can evolve to the point where they become inoculated against--and even profit from--a world of free and easy copying. And there are important lessons here for copyright-focused industries, like music and film, that have struggled as digital technologies have made copying increasingly widespread and difficult to stop. Raustiala and Sprigman's arguments have been making headlines in The New Yorker, the New York Times, the Financial Times, the Boston Globe, Le Monde, and at the Freakonomics blog, where they are regular contributors. By looking where few had looked before--at markets that fall outside normal IP law--The Knockoff Economy opens up fascinating creative worlds. And it demonstrates that not only is a great deal of innovation possible without intellectual property, but that intellectual property's absence is sometimes better for innovation.

Book Description :

Multi-platinum music producer and author of Gotta Get Signed How To Become A Hip Hop Producer, Sahpreem A. King is back with his long awaited follow up, Surviving The Game How To Succeed In The Music Business. In this book, Sahpreem takes music business newcomers by the hand and teaches them how to succeed in the music business the do-it-yourself way. In addition, Sahpreem talks about music publishing, marketing and promotion, starting an online record label, the power of social media, and making money from your music without being signed to a record deal. Music is a business. That’s what this book is all about. For a whole host of justifiable reasons, there have been numerous other books that have been published about the “talent side” of the music industry. What distinguishes this book is the author’s firsthand experience in the industry from both the talent side and the business side. Artists from all genres of music, managers, producers, A&R directors, entertainment lawyers, PR consultants, label executives, and the public at large will benefit immeasurably from reading and studying King’s advice and good counsel. Sahpreem King’s practical approach on how to get into the music business, and how to do well as a result of your passion for the art form and your willingness to grind and work hard every day, is informed by his years of experience, first as a DJ and recording artist, and then as a successful producer. The book is more than an industry insider’s view. Sahpreem tells you what to do and what not to do, from imparting to you his basic knowledge about music to the deeper wisdom that he has acquired over the last twenty years.
