Video: Before Music Dies Documentary

Got 77 minutes? If so, I highly recommend watching this excellent documentary that examines music marketing, the effects of radio consolidation, and the impact of the commerce on art. The doc features Questlove, Eryka Badu, Bradford Marsalis, Eric Clapton, and many more.

Thanks for sharing Pip! This is in no way directed to you, but the documentary wasn't everything I thought it would be when I saw the trailer some time ago. I was hoping for more artist (both independent & commercial)commentary. And (I know this is biased) more Questo would've been great!

I agree Bozo. I thought it would be worthwhile for those willing to take the time. However, you are right, the doc didn't cover any new ground on the topic of music being commadified
