Happy Birthday Neil

Rust Never Sleeps, still one of the top 10 concerts I’ve seen in my lifetime. Happy Birthday Neil Young – a bottomless talent of amazing, deep risk-taking music. One of the longest relevant careers in rock history and the wildest range of styles. 60s to 2010’s he never coasted or took the easy way out artistically. Not for everyone I guess, but that’s one of my favorite things about him.

Check out some of his lesser known music.

 

The world’s highest paid #DJs – reason for all DJs to celebrate.

In my opinion every DJ should celebrate that the highest paid DJs make up to $66 million. When the top end is this high there are so many more opportunities to make money in the middle. I agree with many of the complaints I hear from DJs, that skills have really deteriorated (mixing and programming both), that PR/promotion and looks have become too important, and that you don’t have a shot at the big bucks unless you are also a Producer. But still, when I was a DJ in those ancient late 20th century days, I’m not sure if there was even one DJ making a million a year. An entire industry has been created. There’s a game to be played that was never there back in the day.

Then again, a lot of things have changed for DJs.

Here’s the list of the world’s highest paid DJs for 2015.

 

Don’t Wait Too Long

You can cry a million tears
You can wait a million years
If you think that time will change your ways
Don’t wait too long
When your morning turns to night
Who’ll be loving you by candlelight
If you think that time will change your ways
Don’t wait too long
Maybe I got a lot to learn
Time can slip away
Maybe you got to lose it all
Before you find your way
Take a chance, play your part
Make romance, it might break your heart
But if you think that time will change your ways
Don’t wait too long
It may rain, it may shine
Love will age like fine red wine
But if you think that time will change your ways
Don’t wait too long
Peyroux song

#JayZ says key to #success is “be water.”

~ Be Water.

~ If you pour water in a cup, it takes the shape of the cup. If you pour it in a teapot, it takes the shape of the teapot. Be fluid. Treat each project differently. The best style is no style, because styles can be figured out. And when you have no one style, they can’t figure you out.
