I stumbled upon an article tonight with Prince saying, “The Internet is Over.” This comment in regard to mainstream music and the way the world gets music. Very interesting thought. I think in many ways this is true for him. Especially for a well known artist used to a hefty paycheck. However, I feel the internet has just begun in terms of music distribution for the little guys. The up and coming artists have a real way to do it themselves now. The ocean is large though. A lot of creatures swimming around looking for a bite. We can weigh the pros and cons all day about the state of the music industry but to me it seems that success is in the eye of the beholder. The game is changing and everyone is trying new things. Maybe only releasing a CD is the way Prince will connect with his true fans and get a paycheck. While some artists that have never been heard are making huge gains by giving away their music online. Whatever the case maybe, we have a digital revolution going on here. All of us with Bongiovi Acoustics and DPS Plug In are feeling like we are in the right place at the right time. Different strokes for different folks. How do you feel about the state of the music industry?
