The highly-acclaimed inside history of the whole damn popular music business.
Simon Napier-Bell has been a film composer, songwriter, record producer, and author, but he is perhaps best known for having managed such artists as The Yardbirds, Marc Bolan, T Rex, Japan and Wham! Under his management, Wham! became the first Western pop group to ever play in Communist China in the 80s. He is the author of three other books about the music industry: You Don't Have to Say You Love Me, Black Vinyl White Powder, and I'm Coming to Take You to Lunch. He is a director of Papa Entertainments PLC and of Snap-B Music, and continues to consult, write and broadcast on the music industry.
"The world's highest-grade rock'n'roll gossip . . . Ta-Ra-Ra-Boom-De-Ay is a sharp, fast-moving and beautifully written popular history spanning three centuries of wheeling, dealing, horse-trading, cigar-chewing enterprise and skullduggery" -- Mark Ellen "There's music and there's the music business. And there's the relationship between the two. Simon Napier-Bell pulls no punches. He tells this roller coaster of a story like it is: engaging, amusing, heartbreaking, enraging and appalling with every turn of the page" -- Mark Knopfler "One of the best music books I've ever read" -- Pete Paphides "A fascinating, witty and optimistic music biz history, by one of its legendary insiders . . . An essential text" * Mojo * "The only history of pop music you'll ever have to read" * Huffington Post *
