Rock On

So I just finished Rock On by Dan Kennedy and boy did I laugh a lot. I was reading the book once while holding my napping 9-month old daughter and laughed so hard I almost woke her up. Oops. But in all seriousness, Rock On is funny. And I mean laugh out loud while your reading it on the bus and the other riders stare at you—funny.

Amidst all of the laughing, however, the book points out some of the problems that major record labels are having now and, thus not doing well (not selling records). One of these is record companies are so totally focused on creating rock stars, that they loose sight of the music. I, for one, don’t feel the need to listen to music by rock stars; I want to listen to music by musicians trying to create art.

So read it and enjoy it. And here is a little video of Dan Kennedy for your enjoyment.
