Grand Funk Railroad Featured in BusinessWeek

Great, short article discussing the declining market for Rock & Roll and especially second- and third-tier rock bands. John Fine reminds how much the music industry has changed in thirty years:

  • Buyers don’t listen to albums they prefere singles
  • New York and Philadelphia dont’ have any radio stations devoted to “modern Rock”

The article is free to read but you must register:
