Jeff Price Of TuneCore Slams Tom Silverman Of New Music Seminar

tomsilverman.jpgYesterday, Wired Magazine published an interview with Tom Silverman of the New Music Seminar. In this interview Tom made the repulsive quote of:

 ”80 percent of all records released are
just noise — hobbyists. Some companies like TuneCore are betting on the
long tail because they get the same $10 whether you sell one copy or
10,000″

Jeff Price of TuneCore took Tom to the woodshed in a blog entry on TuneCore and showed his quote to be what I deem disgusting to come from the mouth of someone promoting a “New Music Seminar”. If I was attending this function I would ask for a refund it seems another celebration of tired, old ideas.
