Couldn't Put It Down

By Malcolm Guess, Artist/ Fan


Hi Bobby, I wrote to you a couple of weeks ago after attending the DIY workshop to ask you a question about setting up a band agreement.  You told me that it was covered in chapter two of The Musician’s Handbook; so I went out and purchased it the next day.  I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN AFTER I STARTED READING IT!!  It was great!  It seems, that always in my life, books come to me at the exact time when I need to read them.  Your book was the epitome of this synchronicity. I've ready many other music business books and wasn't quite sure what I could possibly get from reading another one.  As it is, I got a WHOLE lot! Thank you.



Extensive and Thorough
By Tom Schulte


BOBBY, I am looking through your books and find the information to be extensive and thorough. Many times I talk to would-be career musicians and this is exactly the sort of resource I want to point them to.



Thank you for the inspiration!
By C-Diz


I've been a drummer since I was 13, just over 10 years now.  Since I've been playing with various musical groups I've always dreamed of getting signed to a major label.  Now at the age of 23, having a undergrad degree in business I'm more influenced by your books and website to pursue drumming as a business and taking it as far as I can imagine.  I have more knowledge about my real drumming goals now than before I discovered your works.  Thank you for the inspiration!
