#SYPScotBookClub: Richy Muirhead.

richyWe’re looking at ‘All Things Music‘ for our final book club of 2015, so we’re thrilled to have Richy Muirhead, founder of the Scottish Alternative Music Awards, as a guest blogger to share his pick.

October 2015 saw the awards hit their sixth and biggest year so far, celebrating the mix and quality of music our wee country has to offer, so we wanted to know what music book stands out to Richy, and why…

walterHowling At The Moon – Walter Yetnikoff.

Book/author: Howling At The Moon by Walter Yetnikoff

Why you like it: Its a real punchy, honest, and funny insight in the music industry. In particular the Record Label side of things and gives a light onto working with A list acts such as Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger and more. I read it when I was about 15 and decided I wanted to work in this industry…obviously didn’t tell my parents that at the time. Sometimes you hear wild stories about the music industry, and it reminds me of this book. Good read.

For fans of: Irvine Welsh, Michael Jackson, Major Record Labels

Describe in 3 words: Explicit, Extreme, Entertaining
