Music Biz Is Dead

(KNAC) Legendary music producer Bob Ezrin says the much talked about imminent demise of the record business is already here. "People are not going to the record store and are not paying for downloads," says the man who discovered Alice Cooper, produced Pink Floyd's The Wall, as well as records for David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, KISS, and countless other bands.

He said that people in the music business can't simply find new ways to do old things. "The old things are gone. In the next couple of weeks, maybe months, there will be a bloodbath at the major record companies. We're not at the tipping point, we're on the other side."

He said the goal of having a hit record is a bad goal. "Maybe one person in this room will have a hit record. The days of hit records are over," he said. "It's about being something real. . . people need to change their goals in order to survive as entertainers."
