Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Mick Jagger used to refer to the Beatles as the 'Four-Headed Monster.' Coincidentally, the term 'Four-headed Monster' could also be used to refer to Brian Tarquin.

Along with his incredible and innovative guitar playing, his highly creative composing and production skills, Brian has grown a proverbial 'Fourth Head' as the author of this invaluable and definitive 'go to' guide on how to understand, survive and even thrive in the turbulent world known as the music industry.

Whether hoping to be in the music industry, or already a seasoned pro, or possessing no interested at all in the business of music, Brian Tarquin's Insider's Guide to Music Licensing reveals the nuts and bolts of today's ever changing music industry and is a total MUST READ!"

—Hal Lindes (Dire Straits)
