    Have Already Changed Music Biz Grapples With Next Steps MySpace as the Man In The Mirror The Music Biz Turns On Itself Again Interesting back and forth regarding MySpace from a Robin Davey Hypebot post this morning entitled Why The Decline Of MySpace Is Great For Musicians S polier Alert Excerpt from the Robin Davey case Musicians are better off without MySpace MySpace got bands into the mindset that music was worth nothing more than a friend request and a number of plays MySpace is an extension of the dying major music industry MySpace quickly got into bed with the majors partnering with Interscope and selling out to Rupert Murdoch s News Corp They didn t care about the importance of nurturing a career or promoting good music they just cared about making money for themselves Majors used it create a facade that the industry was vibrant again and that they were at the forefront M ySpace led bands to believe they didn t have to do the hard work of getting out and building a live following anymore Excerpt from the rebutal from Backstage Smarts a D I Y touring musician As a member of a band who went national during the peak of Myspace we ve sold 70 000 cds since then I have to say that it did wonders for us and I think the decline of Myspace seriously hurt the independent music community On MySpace People could post a song they liked on their page and people would listen We racked up over a million plays from this alone For a while Myspace plays were just as valid as Sound Scan numbers We were able to actually use them as leverage in negotiating our record deal I could even predict how well a band we were playing with was going to draw based on their Myspace plays and I was usually right But overall I think there was way more net positives than negatives about Myspace for the music community and I mourn the loss of it I knew Facebook wouldn t be as helpful to bands the first time I opened up our band s Facebook page and had to ask Hey where s the music player To Hypebot s credit the layout of their comment feed is open and facilitates this kind of healthy back and forth I think it s worth your time to read the full original post and response on Hypebot The Final Take For the digerati I m not sure MySpace was ever cool But if you think back to August 2006 as MySpace announced its 100 millionth account MySpace was not only the biggest Social Networking site in the world but arguably the single most coveted homepage for any contemporary artist Flash forward to the present day significant audience advertising and buzz are gone and it s become fashionable to pile on As if we never ever coveted MySpace s attention in the first place This scenario reminds me

  • The Football Commissioner & The Music Biz-Change Before You're Forced To. - Digital Music Insider
    the demographic you appeal to The NFL has employed a series of tactics to broaden it s appeal most notably by catering to women More American women watch the NFL than any other team sport and not just the Super Bowl In the past decade the NFL has launched several marketing and outreach programs including coaching clinics apparel that fits women and donning pink during breast cancer awareness month The league has amplified the idea of watching football tends to be a social event with people watching in groups of varying gender composition Think back 10 15 years The best sellers of the old guard music business were truly mass appeal hit makers Christina Aguilera Dixie Chicks Alicia Keys Britney Spears Kelly Clarkson Metallica Linkin Park etc These acts were for Mom s daughters Dad s and sons Songs from these albums were on four to five formats of radio and all over TV But the last ten years have seen tremendous erosion of teen radio listening and increased dominance of niche albums at the top of the charts Susan Boyle Sade and Josh Groban representing the adults and countless 1 week Soundscan winners representing the hard rockers and rap communities The industry desperatley needs more than one Taylor Swift it needs multiple all things to all people stars Which brings us to 4 Make more stars and then make them bigger Build star making into the DNA of everything you do From Nielsen In 2001 journeyman Trent Dilfer led the Ravens to a Championship creating the perception that a team can win a Super Bowl without a marquee quarterback Most NFL teams now subscribe to the belief that the quarterback is the most critical cog both on and off the field The Cowboys for example lost QB Tony Romo to injury and saw their season and ratings go south In recent years the NFL has tried to safeguard their stars implementing rules to ensure that the QB isn t tackled low hit in the head or after the whistle And to a large extent the quarterbacks this year were healthy and able to serve as the marquee names for their teams Interest in quarterbacks goes beyond the stadium they are making news off the field too Many have been linked romantically to supermodels actresses and singers creating news in celebrity magazines and other non traditional media This should be the music business s greatest advantage The faces and bodies of our stars aren t hidden by helmets and pads Music stars have fashion stylists gauzy lighting and PR handlers But our star making machinery is broken Sure it s partially broken by piracy partially broken by radio and retail lameness but I d argue it s also broken by ourselves The labels and even the newer model companies like Spotify Rhapsody etc have underestimated the power even the necessity of big stars The labels have slashed their marketing budgets so dramatically that it s a miracle they can develop
