LeBon: "We were part of the demise of the old-fashioned record industry. We witnessed it first-hand, and it was very interesting, but it wasn't a great experience. To go from the days when people used to get grand pianos delivered to their doorstep to a time when label executives are being laid off left, right, and center is quite extreme." - Read the full interview here
