Will Streaming Kill The Music Business?
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Mar 9, 2013
My thanks to Ornate Coalman for bringing the following to our attention. Ornate writes "A blog entry by Moses Avalon on streaming and major labels notes the following:

"Why Major Labels Love Getting Pennies for Dollars*--a look at streaming from the major labels perspective

*major labels make about the same revenue from albums while selling 30% less units then they did in the pre-Internet era. (1989-2000: $48.6B, 2001-2011: $53.3B)
*Now they are turning to streaming. "The industry jargon for this is called going from an “ownership model to an access model.”
*Net Profit per unit in terms of album sales: 1--1989-2000---$4.50; 2--2001-2011---$7.90

And now, the onset of streaming: quoting the author:
"It will bring back the label’s days of shrugging at the artist’s manager when he shows up with a $26 royalty statement for 501,324 streams. It will bring back the power they had over distribution, promotion and the edge they had over their free-wheelin’ indie competitors. In other words…"


Much more at Part 1 of this expose."

Prog Butts!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Mar 9, 2013
My thanks to The Dork Report and Sean Hollenhors for bringing this fine site to our attention.  Via Facebook David Myers reminds us of a classic Bruford quote on the topic. "Life for me is a series of asses that I played behind. Adrian Belew has got a very nice ass, slim. John Wetton's is a little bigger. Jon Anderson's is very small. Nice legs, lousy ass. It's a series of asses." KC Butts can be found directly here
