About the Book:
Tom Samuels’s book, Stop Making Music, contains 136 essays that deliver contrary opinions on the music business. They are written in the voice of an arrogant nitwit who wrestles with “evil” musicians, songwriters and producers. Read each essay carefully because you will be asked if you “agree” or “disagree.” No one goes unscathed…not even the beloved Beatles. Where else could you find an Off-Broadway play based on the life of KoRn? You will be required to actually think about the current state of the music industry. Reading this book is an illuminating journey that will help you to understand why you are a music fan. There is a lesson to be learned in each chapter…a satirical, funny lesson that you will never forget.
“Tom Samuels really knows the music business. He writes about historic musicians such as Gershwin, Vivaldi and Mozart along with current bands such as Green Day, Death Cab For Cutie and Radiohead. His character is one dude you do not want to get in an argument with as he will twist your mind into a pretzel with his bizarre logic. It is best to let his pronouncements flow through your mind down to your funny bone. He has written a great satire on every aspect of the music business.”
