Points to Ponder

Is the recording industry more like publishing than I'd realized? Of course I'm not sure what McGuinn means by "a modest advance."

i think the recording industry is very similar to publishing. i'm often struck by how similar -- all the way from contracts and loss of artistic control to how hard it is for unknowns band to be heard even if they have a label. and just like book signings, there's no point in playing a show if the band doesn't have a following in that particular venue. waste of time and money, plus horribly depressing.
