But the music business has changed. Everything is a lot more fragmented. And record sales have tanked business wide, not just for us.
Yeah, it really does seem like he's trying to recapture his former glory, rather than trying to adapt to the current market. Like you said, the music business is not what it used to be. I've been studying how the trends are working in the states, and album sales are abysmal compared to 10 or 15 years ago....yet singles are selling as much as ten times MORE, well, the TOP singles are anyway.....I haven't done enough studies on singles that are in the middle and lower tiers...I would suspect that they are actually on the way down. Either way, I suppose this is a subject for another topic.
