Recording artists go with the 'L' when the need a way out
My fave from this Yahoo! blog posting:
Excuse: "Has to immediately return to the studio to complete album"
The American Idol runner-up had been dropped from his label and was playing the House of Blues circuit last year when he cancelled three gigs to "immediately return to the studio" to record a follow-up album. Really? You have no label deal, you're playing HOB gigs, and you have to rush into the studio? Who's waiting for the record? No one, apparently. See The Light peaked at #150 on the Billboard 200.
Bo needs to watch "Gimme Shelter" and pay attention to the Muscle Shoals sequence. You can make some great recordings in the midst of a tour.
