Produzentenlegende und Labelmogul RICK RUBIN hat in einer groß angelegten Titelstory im anerkannten New York Times Magazine über das Musikgechäft sinniert. Des weiteren geht es in der Titelstory auch um den neuen Job von RUBIN als Vize-Chef von Columbia Records. Hier das kurze Statement:
"The music business, as a whole, has lost its faith in content, Only 10 years ago, companies wanted to make records, presumably good records, and see if they sold. But panic has set in, and now it's no longer about making music, it's all about how to sell music. And there's no clear answer about how to fix that problem. But I still believe that the top priority at any record company has to be coming up with great music. And for that reason, Sony was very smart to hire Rick."
