To quote Bart Simpson quoting George Burns, “Show business is a hideous bitch goddess.” There are a million stories about the trials and tribulations of navigating the entertainment industry, and the music business in particular. Naturally there are plenty of great songs analyzing what it means to be in the profession of making art for a living. Not all of it paints a pretty picture. Ben is joined by songwriter, musician, producer and non-stop-musical-force-of-nature Fernando Perdomo to break down these great songs that discuss contract disputes, crooked A&R reps, the art of selling out, fulfilling rock n roll dreams and becoming an overnight sensation. It truly is a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll, and these songs provide a cautionary tale. Do you have what it takes? Find out.
Fernando Perdomo’s new solo album Voyeurs is on sale now. Find out more here:
