A Music business Lesson From Frank Zappa

Frank Zappa imageSolo artists many times get a reputation for being hard bosses, but the fact of the matter is that there's a lot of pressure on them from many different angles.

Here's an original Frank Zappa interview from 1984 that describes why he sometimes needed to be a "dictator" in his dealings with his band, as well as how much it cost him to get the band ready to tour (and remember this was over 30 years ago so we're talking about 2.3 times more in today's money).

Great animation by Carl King and score by Stephen Cox, by the way. Thanks to DrumTalk TV for the heads up.

Absolutely spot on.

Teamwork; all for one and one for all.

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.
