Rock and justice: an odd couple. And yet, musicians have often had to deal with the courts. They arbitrate the tumultuous relations between musicians, managers and labels, which often turn to the advantage of producers and other agents who happily exploit the artists. It organizes the ruptures within the groups, in front of the emerging hatreds and the stormy separations. It is a question of miscellaneous facts, drugs, sex, of these affairs which make the joy of the media. Without forgetting these small arrangements with the law that artists intend to follow their own rules. Because, by its transgressive and subversive vision, its perpetual play with codes and limits, rock music puts society and its institutions to the test. Fabrice Epstein is a specialist in these cases, a lawyer and a columnist for various magazines. He draws up a judicial history of Rock and Roll from the 1950s to the present day, between small cases and major scandals.
