managerial problems faced by a rock & roll band

Es­ti­mated reading time is 1 minute.

JUST STUMBLED over this on Face­book and I wanted to post it here im­me­di­ately sans com­men­tary. This is a lesson that EVERY one of you wannabe recording artists should watch until it is burned into the deepest re­cesses of your lizard-brain: a brief de­scrip­tion of the man­age­rial prob­lems faced by a rock and roll band . . .

If you don’t know these ar­tic­u­late lec­turers, they are Mark Volman (the hair) and Howard Kaylan (the beard). They were the two lead singers for the Tur­tles from 1964 through 1970.

After the group broke up, the two con­tinued under the ridicu­lous name of the Phlores­cent Leech & Eddie and recorded as the pri­mary vo­cal­ists for Frank Zap­pa’s Mothers of In­ven­tion (1970-71).

Short­ening their moniker to Flo & Eddie, they con­tinued on as a comedic singing duo, which they re­main more than forty years later.
