Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida, Europe and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Music to their ears, but as whose expense? Even as new tools emerge to help music lovers find under-the-radar tunes and musical talent, veteran rock guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen laments that the rise of digital music, which should've led to an era of higher-quality, better distribution and more financially-stable musicians, has instead, led mostly to the rise of record piracy that affects the livelihood of professional musicians/songwriters who DON'T have a team of corporate professionals at their beck and call; He's right of course!; @mashable, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

But somehow, despite all that is known about its power to sift and find that hidden thing which you seek, the article above never mentions the power of Google Alerts, something I swear by and testify to. Just saying...


Music's long-tail idea not working out exactly as planned, is it?

I last wrote about rock guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen in my April 30, 2011 blog post titled, If the blog is rockin', don't come knockin' - Yngwie Malmsteen: Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (HQ); original version by ABBA (LIVE at Wembley Arena, 1979)
http://hallandalebeachblog.blogspot.com/2011/04/if-blog-is-rockin-dont-come-knockin.html of which this remake of ABBA's Gime Gimme! Gimme! is but one of many videos there.
