  • Inside the Industry - DAVID FISHOF - So You Want To Be A Rock N' Roll Star?

    So, you wanna be a rock ‘n’ roll star?  Then David Fishof is the man you want to meet.  At 56 years old, the slightly overweight man with the salt-and-pepper beard and cherubic smile looks more like a kindly rabbi than a man who easily rubs shoulders with some of the biggest stars in rock music. Make no mistake, however.  Beneath
