CMJ Thought #1

It's been a busy CMJ week. I've seen a bunch of bands - yes, I saw Cold War Kids (I liked, didn't love), and have had a lot of great music talk with old friends and new acquaintances. One thought keeps coming up for me:

There are a lot of truly great, smart and talented people in all areas of this business who really love music and are committed to it. The record business as we once knew it may well be beyond saving, but I've been really heartened by the conversations I've had. Yes, there's a certain amount of the inevitable cynicism, but there's an awareness that in the uncertain space that we're in, there tremendous opportunity. I'm happy to be a part of it.
