Not All Music Artists Are Big Fat Lip-Synching Social Media Babies
I spoke on a panel called Engaging Your Community. And later in the day I sat in the Artists Panel to see what they had to say.
I was amazed at how utterly different the discussions about social media were at these two panels. The artists were so resistant. In fact, I asked a question of the artists, which began: “With respect, the vibe here is of a bunch of big babies…”
It seemed to me that the artists pined for the good old days where radio, Billboard Magazine, major labels, and CDs were the rule and “stealing music” on the Web wasn’t yet a pain in the ass.
I got news for artists. We’re not going back to the good old days.
