but wait... my youngest daughter is getting a record player and buying vinyl - Tina Chase Gillmor
I don't expect anybody to tackle the above issues. The labels are run by old men who want instant paydays and the acts are all chasing the bankers and their private planes and the unwashed wannabes want it to be easy, like reality television. As for the techies, they were never about the music, just extracting the revenue of what exists. And believe me, we don't have a technology problem, we've got an artistic problem, married to a marketing problem. So this is what's gonna happen. We're gonna continue to plod along until someone does it differently. It will probably be an act. It might be a new genre of music. The tunes will come first and the money second. The choices made will not align with those of today. And when it arrives we'll all scratch our heads and say...THAT'S IT! - Jerry Schuman
5. Touring is about making money, it's rarely about growing your audience, especially at today's inflated ticket prices. That's one thing Kid Rock got right, letting looky-loos in at a low price and trying to close them at the gig. It's a strategy abandoned by the business that needs to come back. You've got to be so good live that you gain new fans. This can be done via TV, it's what Prince did at the Super Bowl and has been touring in the wake of ever since, but there was Prince at the Super Bowl and... - Jerry Schuman
Thank God I lived in times when you could hold the music and smell the vinyl - Moe Glitz
