“Amazon. Google. CCR. Nirvana. Besides their overwhelming individual successes and influence, they all have something else in common: every single one of them started in a garage. Just like coders in a startup focus strictly on their core product, bands in their infancy tend to devote almost all of their time on music, and why wouldn’t they? Nobody wants to listen to bad music!
But you know what else they all have in common? They got their start in a garage but didn’t stay there. They became multibillion dollar industry leaders and sold out arenas. If you want to make a career in the music industry, you’ll have to tackle business issues with no less energy and creativity than you bring to the music.”
