The music business operates by finding and exploiting talent. This happens in many different ways. Money is made from selling records, videos, merchandising and concert tickets. Money is also collected and paid to the writers each time their music is played on the radio or television or performed live in public.
I believe he has bennefited financially for the copywrites to some of his music. There has since been a law passed that makes it impossible for a killer to gain financially for their crimes in any way. This includes music, artwork, books, TV or movies, 'killer' collectables or trophies from crime scenes.
I'd say Beast and the Harlot, Aterife, and Nightmare. What brought my attetion to them was the Afterlife music video on tv. Beast and the Harlot was on Guitar Hero and had a music video that landed on tv. Nightmare has LOTS of radio play and a music video that i periodically see on tv. Through all this, they have built their fame they have today.
They made 5 films - A Hard Day's Night, Help!, Magical Mystery Tour, Yellow Submarine and Let It Be. Magical Mystery Tour was the one made for television. Let It Be was planned as a television special, but it was decided later that a theatrical release would better recoup the money they'd spent in making it.
Perhaps the most important event in music history during the 1980's was MTV, or Music Television. MTV brought with it the music video which is the idea that you can have visuals to accompany songs. It was not a new concept, in fact the concept of music videos had been around for at least a couple of decades, but MTV is what made music videos more popular.
The first televisions to be sold to the public were available in 1929. They were made by the Baird company in the UK. They were sold in support of the BBC broadcasts that began in the same year. Several hundred televisions were sold at the equivalent price of around $12000 each. It was a great deal of money for the very limited transmissions being made at the time.
