A Former Talking Head Talks and Talks
David Byrne has a must read, lengthy piece in Wired for all interested in the music business. Here is the link. The article builds on Byrne's considerable experience in all angles of the business, along with good data and embedded links to interviews about a variety of subjects and groups. Byrne is not a bomb-thrower or an ideologue: he is someone who loves music and has spent his whole adult career forging innovative songs and ways of bringing innovative music to the public. The article is just as innovative, as it explores the traditional roles of labels, and how the business is evolving.
