The lives of Bowie and Frey will be forever linked due to geographical proximity (both passed away in New York) and short span of time between their respective deaths, but their paths to a rich afterlife appear to be as different as their mortal careers. Of course, postmortem success includes its own unique set of challenges.

The Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show’s list of performers would make the promoters of any major music festival jealous: Coldplay, Beyoncé and likely Bruno Mars, for starters. Yet, just like Madonna, the Black-Eyed Peas and Katy Perry before them, none of the acts gracing the Super Bowl stage in Santa Clara this Sunday will be receiving a performance fee.

Gertler runs management company AG Artists, serving multiple major label and indie acts, but it was his discovery of Mendes that changed everything.

Like many of his peers on the 30 Under 30 list, Dave Free has already accomplished more than most people twice his age. In fact, of all this year’s honorees in the music category—including big names like Fetty Wap, Selena Gomez and Shawn Mendes—Free came the closest to a unanimous selection amongst our blue ribbon panel of judges.
