One great thing about Marquette is the Peter White Public Library. If you’ve never had a chance to check it out, I most definitely suggest checking it out. I usually go through times where I don’t go in there, and then I’ll remember that I should probably get in there to check out some books, or music, or movies.
On the suggestion of the newsman (that Walt guy) I checked out the book “So You Wanna Be A Rock & Roll Star” by Jacob Slichter. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, the author is the drummer from Semisonic.
If you are interested in music and ever wondered about the music business the book brings to light a lot of the things that go on in the music industry. Working in radio and playing music it was a bit of surprise to find out about how figures are built on records shipped, and not sold. Plus, there’s how a song actually becomes a hit or a dud.
I know I returned it last night, so it’s in the library right now.
