Selling Out is Passé

February 8, 2013

There are generations of insurance salesmen, customer service representatives, and construction workers who used to be in popular, successful bands.  Whether or not they took full advantage of their opportunities, in deference to their artistic integrity, is known only to them. We live in a post-‘Behind the Music’ world where it’s foolish not to know how the world of commercial creativity works.  If you can cash in without threatening your future career, then you have only yourself to blame when that opportunity passes you by.
