I got quoted in Guitar Player Magazine! (Alex Lifeson on the cover, page 21.) This has happened 3 times this year. I must be quotable or just having a great run of luck! http://www.guitarplayer.com/ .

This is another. We also discussed ASCAP/BMI and how it's destroying live music all over the United States.

Last night I was interviewed for the final Amador Music Hub blog by Gwen Bohdan. A couple of videos were shot. This is one of them.

As a musician, I for one do not believe that either organization is doing anything but ill for 95% of the working musicians in the United States over these tactics. I do not understand why there is every incentive for venue owners and operators to be offered canned vs. live music. One by one venues that we play at, where we hope to polish our craft, are being strongarmed and shut down all over the United States. It seems to me that over the long-term, the same people that do this are going to kill the future geese that lay golden eggs for them. If they truly represented music and musicians as they claimed, there would be incentive, not dissuasion via these excessive fees for venues to have live music. I fully support their mission in protecting the copyrighted material as recorded by the original artists, but to destroy music scenes and shut down venues over excessive and unrealstic fees in these trying economic times does little for me, or anyone else that I know that does, or wants to play live music in public, be they covers or original material. (and I suppose it doesn't matter at this point: They've already swept through and worked to shut down most of the venues in my area. I hope the same thing doesn't happen in your town. Peace, God Bless, and Good Luck!)
