"There are only three kinds of people: bus drivers, bus riders and pedestrian targets. Who do you want to be?" John Wall

"It is not only what we do, but also what we do not do, for which we are accountable." Moliere

Rob Barnett
is blogging the good stuff...

"The old business has been hanging on, hoping that somehow the digital genie would dissipate. Bad move. New distribution pipes opened up everywhere taking away one of the last reasons inspired musicians needed major record companies. Little Steven tried to tell me in 2000 that the new digital pipeline recreated the old ‘single’ mentality and shoved the ‘album’ idea to the back of the bus. I didn’t want to believe him, but he was right. He always is."

Kudos, Rob! Check out Rob's blog The Night Feed - here. Highly recommended.
