The Beach Boys are the latest artist to cash in on the booming song-rights market.
The legendary band has sold controlling interest in its song catalog to Iconic Artists Group, a company led by music industry titan Irving Azoff.
The dollar amount of the deal was not made public, but it’s likely a hefty amount – artists like Bob Dylan and Stevie Nicks have recently sold off their song catalogs for nine-figure sums.
How much do you think the Beach Boys got for their catalog? Why are song rights such a hot ticket right now?
