Music is My Life: Episode 044

Janet Billig Rich on Management (Nirvana, Hole) and Music Supervision (‘Rock of Ages,’ ‘Moulin Rouge’), and More

Janet Billig Rich became interested in music when she first saw the Replacements. After taking in about 100 shows she went on to sell merch at indie rock shows, intern at Caroline Records, and then move on up to manage acts like Nirvana, Hole, and Dinosaur Jr.

She discusses her varied career in the music industry, and talks about why her appearance on the cover of the New York Post (below) led her to switch from management to a career as a music supervisor, clearing rights for Broadway shows like Rock of Ages, as well as for movies and TV shows.
