I've been with many bands that have this concept that a record deal is the only goal if you want to make it as a successful musician. Wrong! As soon as I typed in the words DIY Music into amazon this book popped up. What can I say I brushed through the book and now I'm studying it, I have only got to the fans sections (tenth of the book) and I have started re-adjusting my focus to DIY. As a musician I had already been using my own studio equipment, website design, social networking websites, booking my own gigs etc etc. This book just sets in stone that you don't need a middle man to become successful, you can do it all yourself! Cheers guys for developing a book which I'll now carry around with me at all times until it's scarred in my head.
