In the music industry, the days of deals in smoke-filled back rooms are all but over. Artist development happens on the streets, not at major labels. And the old-school "professional" managers are stepping down, one by one, to cozy retirements funded by decades of commissions from successful clients. With fewer and fewer "lifers" available to take on new clients, what's an emerging artist to do? Likewise, how does an aspiring artist manager get a start without the connections and influence required of their predecessors? Music business manager and consultant Joe Taylor Jr. set out to answer these questions for a member of his staff. The result? Over 160 pages of nuts-and-bolts advice for the novice music manager, or for any musician looking to boost their success team by adding homegrown management to the mix.

Analysieren statt vertuschen Menschen, die gezielt aus Fehlern lernen, anstatt sie zu vertuschen oder anderen in die Schuhe zu schieben, nennt Matthew Syed Black-Box-Denker. Dazu sind jedoch nur wenige in der Lage. Auch in vielen Unternehmen geht man mit Misserfolgen nicht offen und ohne Schuldzuweisungen um. Syed bietet aufschlussreiche Analysen für dieses Verhalten. Zu welchen Erfolgen hingegen ein offensiver Umgang mit Fehlern führen kann, zeigt Syed anhand konkreter Beispiele, aus der Welt des Sports oder von erfolgreichen Unternehmen wie Google, Pixar oder Dropbox.

Warum wurde der Jazz ausgerechnet in den 1920er Jahren zum dominanten Popularmusikstil? Was hat es mit der Rock n Roll-Revolution auf sich? Warum fanden Heavy Metal, Punk Rock und HipHop den Weg von diversen Subkulturen in die musikindustrielle Verwertung? Welche Auswirkungen haben neue Technologien und das Internet auf das Musikschaffen zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts? Diese und ähnliche Fragen versucht Kreativität und Innovation in der Musikindustrie zu beantworten. Das Buch versteht sich aber nicht nur als eine Geschichte der Musikindustrie seit der Erfindung des Phonographen durch Thomas Alva Edison im Jahr 1877, sondern bietet auch ein Erklärungsmodell, wie ästhetische, technologische, legistische, wirtschaftliche, soziale, politische etc. Veränderungen ineinander griffen und Strukturbrüche in der Musikindustrie auslösten. Zur Anwendung kommt ein integriertes Kreativitäts- und Innovationsmodell, mit dessen Hilfe so komplexe Wandlungsprozesse wie zum Beispiel die Entstehung der Rockmusik Mitte der 1950er Jahre ganzheitlich erklärt werden können. Das Modell ist aber auch der Ausgangspunkt für die Analyse gegenwärtiger Wandlungsprozesse in der Musikindustrie rund um die Themen MP3, Musiktauschbörsen im Internet und neue Geschäftsmodelle, die den Zugang zur Musik zur Dienstleistung machen. All das sind Indizien für einen erneuten Strukturbruch in der Musikindustrie, der als Teil der digitalen Revolution verstanden werden kann und ausführlich in diesem Buch zur Sprache kommt.
