For many people, Paul Williams is the guy they just found out worked with Daft Punk on their hit album. To many of the rest of us, he’s the musician who made a fortune writing and producing tunes for decades. What you may not know is that he is also the president and chairman of ASCAP who celebrates their 100 year anniversary today.
If you are a working musician, band, or songwriter, ASCAP may very well be the source of your bread and butter. You see, ASCAP stands for the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.
