“Ticket Masters. The Rise of the Concert Industry and How the Public Got Scalped” by Dean Budnick and Josh Baron is one the first books that highlight the emergence of the modern concert industry by telling the story of the rise of its main players: Ticketmaster and Live Nation. It gives a deep insight into the processes within the network of concert promoters, ticketing firms and artist agencies and how this network has evolved over the decades.
I am cooking with leeks for the first time today. I remember a delicious leek and salmon dish I had in San Francisco.It was 1990 something and I think the restaurant was called Slim’s. I went there because I heard it was partly owned by Boz Scaggs. I will always remember that meal.
