In a accomplished, fast paced account filled with larger-than-life personalities, Rolling Stone contributing editor Steve Knopper exhibits that, after the very good wealth and way over the '80s and '90s, Sony, Warner, and the opposite mammoth gamers led to their very own downfall via years of denial and undesirable judgements within the face of dramatic advances in expertise.

mammoth track has been asleep on the wheel ever considering that Napster revolutionized the way in which track used to be dispensed within the Nineties. Now, simply because strong humans like Doug Morris and Tommy Mottola didn't realize the terrific capability of file-sharing know-how, the labels are at risk of changing into thoroughly out of date. Knopper, who has been writing concerning the for greater than ten years, has unheard of entry to these in detail concerned with the tune world's highs and lows. in line with interviews with greater than 2 hundred tune resources -- from Warner track chairman Edgar Bronfman Jr. to renegade Napster author Shawn Fanning -- Knopper is the 1st to provide the sort of specified and sweeping modern background of the industry's wild experience throughout the previous 3 a long time. From the delivery of the compact disc, in the course of the explosion of CD revenues within the '80s and '90s, the emergence of Napster, and the key talks that ended in iTunes, to the present cave in of the as CD revenues plummet, Knopper takes us contained in the boardrooms, recording studios, inner most estates, storage machine labs, corporation jets, company infighting, and mystery bargains of the large names and behind-the-scenes gamers who made all of it take place.

With unforgettable graphics of the tune world's effective and previously potent; designated bills of either fabulous and silly rules delivered to fruition or left at the cutting-room ground; the dish on backroom schemes, negotiations, and brawls; and several other formerly unreported tales, Appetite for Self-Destruction is a riveting, informative, and hugely unique learn.
