Can't wait to sink my teeth into the upcoming New Music Seminar: "The old record business is over. Album sales are down 60% since 2000, radio is breaking less new music than ever. Record companies are signing fewer new artists and artist development budgets continue to shrink. A new music business is rising from its ashes. We are entering the greatest era of opportunity in history."
I have every intention of becoming part of this innovative new business model, since the one I left behind a year ago at Billboard magazine continues to implode into a sad and desperate state. Stand by for coverage on The Smoking Nun.
