The Superstar: Much More Than The Just The music
Vernon Gibbs, Billboard, 5 June 1982
IT MAY be one of the most frequently misused of the music industry's accolades, since in a business full of stars there are few genuine superstars. A superstar has recognizability that goes beyond the instant celebrity flash of the latest hit record maker. A superstar has a track record that would allow him or her to retire right now and still leave behind a history of unforgettable hits; a superstar is an artist whose records have actually changed the music of his or her time and forever altered the way music is listened to.
