Quotation of the Day for January 18, 2011

"It's been said that the music business is in trouble. Wrong! The record business in in trouble. The music business is doing just fine. In the late nineties the explosion of the Internet and new digital recording technology broke the stranglehold the record industry held on the music business....

"... Musicians today are smarter and better educated in the intricacies of the business. We have learned from those who went before. The days when songwriters like Robert Johnson and Woody Guthrie sold their songs for a bottle of whisky are long gone. Artist own their own music today, and this is fine with me."

- David Clayton-Thomas, singer-songwriter, from his memoir Blood, Sweat and Tears.
