He started Starpolish.com a site developed to help musicians help themselves. Lately, traditional band management no longer was effective, so he evolved the process into such projects like Green Day’s American Idiot on Broadway, Producing a documentary about Brian Epstein called the Fifth Beatle which Tiwary had acquired the rights to the music of the Beatles, and Punk Rock Dad a sitcom based on Jim Lindberg the singer of the punk band Pennywise.
So much good information we had to make the interview into two shows.
