Follow Up: Apple Digital Vampire

Here is a great follow up to yesterday’s post in which Pete Townshend called Apple’s iTunes a digital vampire.  Artists perspective versus the business perspective.  Special thanks to @kickshuffle for e-mailing me this link.  Follow that blog for more great music insight  also on twitter @kickshuffle.

Another counter argument to Mr. Townshend, from another good blog.

iTunes: Digital Vampire

Pete Townshend of ‘The Who’ calls iTunes a digital vampire….Happy day after Halloween

Interesting stuff here.  Could Apple enter the talent management market for up and coming bands, providing insight on how best to manage the digital music market?  I don’t know about all that….

Monday, Monday, Monday

Happy Monday everyone, while I am busy in classes all day check out the following:

Intersting interview with Red Light Management exec, a firm that manages tons of high-profile musical acts.

Also check out the video of the day….Gary Clark Jr. performs Bright Lights at the Crossroads Music Festival.  I recently saw him and his band perform at a small venue in downtown Charlottesville and the show blew me away.  Anyway enjoy this clip with some epic guitar soloing.
