Thea-Stewart update

A&R EXITS—UPDATE: Still awaiting official confirmation of the exit of Republic/IDJ A&R exec Peter Thea, while an Epic spokesperson says there will be no statement on the departure of A&R topper Tricky Stewart or anyone in his department. After breaking the news himself in a tweet (see below), Tricky told the bible late Friday, “It’s real simple. I really want to get back into the studio; I miss making records too much. At the end of the day, that’s my No. 1 passion. I want to always give 100% to everything I do. To do both these jobs, I would need to give 200%. To be the best record person I can be is for me to be working in the studio.” So that’s it. Stay tuned for more details on both situations as we get them.
