Art and business are two basically incompatible entities. Artists and businessmen often don’t really like or respect each other, sometimes even hate each other. Working together is not easy for them as their mindsets are so basically different. Most of the time the collaboration is difficult, and often takes both sides close to the limits of what they thought was acceptable.
BUT IN THE END, THE SYMBIOSIS OF THE TWO LED TO SOME OF THE GREATEST MUSIC EVER CREATED.
This symbiosis gave birth to rock ’n’ roll and thus to modern popular music in the 1950s, with Bill Haley’s Rock Around The Clock, and this successful era lasted for about four entire decades.
