“Music Smarts” by Mr. Bonzai: The Inside Truth And Road-Tested Wisdom From The Brightest Minds In The Music Business (Edited by David Schwartz)

So the last two books I have reviewed have had interviews and quotes citing some of the best bass musicians in the Biz. This book review expands upon the music industry by including quotes from the rest of the music world (and a few more bassists)!

What we have here is a book full of ‘pearls of wisdom’ from a collection of major players in the music business, really too many to name here. Though easy to read, this book is one of those finds that can speak volumes to you depending on your mood and situation… Whether you start at the front or open to a random page, you can enjoy this book in savory little bites.

General topics include:
Music makes the world go ’round
Getting started
Careers
Technology
Taking care of Business
The Lifestyle
Heart and soul

One of my favorite quotes came from Artie Shaw, which I can’t repeat in mixed company and the one by “Weird Al” Yankovic is worth a mention as well (but I’ll let you look that one up)! There is a wealth of photos to go wit the text including some old “Spinal Tap” pics.Give it a read, you can’t go wrong!
