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.
