“Anything worthwhile in life requires time, patience, and persistence.”
–Cheryl Richardson



  1. “In the YouTube generation we live in, I walked out onstage every night of my stadium tour last year knowing almost every fan had already seen the show online. To continue to show them something they had never seen before, I brought out dozens of special guest performers to sing their hits with me.”

    Yeah, I do that, too,

    “A friend of mine, who is an actress, told me that when the casting for her recent movie came down to two actresses, the casting director chose the actress with more Twitter followers.”

    Yeah, this happened to me, too.

    “The only real risk is being too afraid to take a risk at all.”

    Yeah, she’s risky.

    This poorly written piece of claptrap reminds me of the Elvis Costello line “Was it a millionaire who said ‘Imagine no possessions?'”

  2. Personally, I don’t agree with her idea that there is no decline of CD sales as a whole – bar a few stand along cases. The demise of the recording industry has been happening for the last decade with illegal/legal downloading, I guess it is not dead and wiped out yet.. just very close.

    Otherwise the other, perhaps main, of the article “musicians and fans will always connect, just in different ways” is spot on. Culture and society develops, so thus people must also in order to, “stay relevant”, if that’s the correct term.
