Some musicians want to be paid for their time and effort. Is that really what’s going to happen?

Blogs

Rich shares his comments about a recent post by Bob Lefsetz at the Lefsetz Letter. Bob notes that many musicians feel that their time, effort and diligence should entitle them to getting paid. He comments that just because they have distribution channels and a CD to sell doesn’t mean that people might actually want to buy it.

Rich adds a thought that musicians should have a plan, including business model, vision, mission, and passion if they do want to market their music.
