Personal Quote:

[2013, on the music industry] Aw man, it's in serious trouble. The Internet has not been a big help. And looking back on it, I don't think we responded properly to the music-sharing program that was rampant and devastated the business. The record companies as they used to be? I think that's gone.

Trivia:

His song "1980" from his album "Rise" was slated to be the theme song for the 1980 Summer Olympic Games until President Jimmy Carter declared an American boycott of those Olympics in protest of the Soviet Union's occupation of Afghanistan. See more »
