Pay to Play, Record Labels, Promoters and more PYS001

Bill, Brian, & John start to bring out their opinions on pay to play. John and Brian both fall into the group of musicians that are against them. The conversation covers topics of pay to play, benefit shows, promoting a show and who is responsible, record labels and hidden issues, music reality tv and the reality of it, music competitions, and more. Is there a right way to do pay to play? Is it killing music scenes and venues? How does it affect younger bands vs veteran bands? Brian talks about the Zippo Hot Tour and how much he loved how that was ran. Bill told road stories and Brian and John want to take him on a tour to manage it for them.

Eric Anthony, formerly of (kaj), and currently soundman came up in during the show. Everyone is in agreement that he does an amazing job on the board … and eventually we get around to Rock for Life, that series is just amazing in all of our eyes.
