In his outrageous memoir, McSweeney's contributor Kennedy chronicles his misadventures at a major record label. Whether he's directing a gangsta rapper's commercial or battling his punk roots to create an ad campaign celebrating the love songs of Phil Collins, Kennedy's in way over his head. And from the looks of those sitting around the boardroom, he's not alone.
Egomaniacs, wackos, incompetents, and executive assistants who know more than their seven-figure bosses round out this power-ballad to office life and rock and roll.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
"Kennedy's style - hilarious, paranoid and vulnerable - captures wonderfully the absurdity of the corporate music industry." (Publishers Weekly)

I thought this book would have some fun, insightful stories about the music industry but that was not the case. A book seemingly written by a high schooler without much creativity. Dan is no wordsmith. So many words used to describe so little. Who edited this book? Anyone? If this is all of the substance and poorly constructed prose it takes to get a book published, I think I will start one myself. There are too many other great book out there to waste the time and money on this one. Next please.
