I was invited to be a guest on Joe Bonamassa's video podcast - Live From Nerdville.
Check it out if you like.
Dweezil Zappa and Joe Bonamassa both are famous American guitarist. Both rocks and look awesome when playing guitar together.
Thank you for explaining how the music business works (or not) these days. I am interested in supporting artists not social media or record companies. I was buying CDs and attending concerts, but somehow that doesn’t seem like enough. I am not a guitar player but I have always been fascinated with the creative process, so that discussion was fun too.
I love your concerts playing your father’s music but I would like to hear your stuff too!
Thanks for posting this interview, Dweezil. So interesting hearing your accounts about growing up in the Zappa household as a budding musician!
Enjoyed this! I would say that I am seeing more " subscription based " mentalities lately ( where Joe and DZ talk about the 36:00 minute mark ).
For example, next to more musicians using platforms such as Reward Music or even Pateron, I've been in touch with a few managers/chefs in restaurants ( especially in the Northern California area ) who are creating their own platforms for monies from certain demographics. For example, my wife and I ( while celebrating our anniversary dinner last night at a top end restaurant ) were invited to participate in a group dinner ( consisting of five or more people ) at this restaurant where each person contributes $40.00 each and the result is a much bigger dinner/desert menu choices. After hearing about this dinner platform, it sounds like more people ( especially in the Sacramento area where I reside ) are participating in these groups. Despite the challenges the pandemic has all thrown us, I can definitely see more folks buying specific products where these same people participate in platforms for specific content.
I wish there was a way to inspire people further into these platforms in such a way that it could actually change the way we do commerce.
Excellent Video! Thanks for sharing....Thank you for providing me the opportunity to be a part of the Reward Music program. I was at the point of just giving up, figured I really had no purpose to pursue this musical path anymore. Reward Music gave me the confidence and inspiration to move forward. If you have the chance, I invite you to join my website and see how your vision has influenced mine.
