Artist Management According to Flo & Eddie

If you ever wondered how ruthless the music business can be, just listen to this story about the business dealings of The Turtles ("Happy Together" among other 60s hits) told by frontmen professor Mark Volman (now teaching at Belmont College) and Howard Kaylan. The two then went on to a successful solo career as Flo & Eddie, and even sang background vocals for Frank Zappa for a time.

The video is humorous because they can laugh about it now, but you can see how this could cause many sleepless nights. To say the least, kids, don't try this at home.
