"There are a lot of people who are really frightened about what’s going on at the moment. I’m the opposite. I think it’s an amazing time. It’s a golden era for bands. You’ve just got to be aware. You’ve got to be savvy with the technology that’s coming and adapt it to you, or you to it, whatever it might be. I’m optimistic, because I’m sure there are other things coming that are going to be really useful. But most of it involves direct access to fans."
The above quote is from a great interview in Fast Company with electronic music pioneer Gary Numan. I love his attitude towards the changing music industry.
And I really love this coming from someone who had a bunch of success in the old model.
