Snippet:

If people aren’t willing to go out and play music live, and use that as a part of how they define themselves as a band, then it’s definitely going to hurt you. You can’t just sit in your home studio and crank out records and get rich. Because people are going to be sharing (the music). But you foster a relationship with an audience, and nurture some good will by allowing taping. Most importantly, like the Grateful Dead, whatever you think of their music, they had it right, in my opinion philosophically, that this music that you’re making requires a listener.
