I skipped the whole thing.  I needed to do it to preserve my sanity.

So much has changed since last year and I was incapable of feigning any enthusiasm to stand around on concrete floors listening to bands I love or loathe.

It’s easier for me to listen to music these days than before but I am not as passionate about it.  Amusingly, I may be more passionate about the business than I’ve been for a while.

I still see a lot of really positive things happening and a tremendous amount of potential.  When I think back of when I started in music, the entire business changed.  A couple of times.
