IF IT WASN’T FOR BAD WE’D BE BORED: The music biz may not be what is was in the previous century, but its ability to startle, shock, dismay and amuse is undiminished. In his latest column, I.B. Bad advances several of the storylines he’s been following of late, including the soon-to-unfold vision of UMG supreme commander Lucian Grainge and the dominoes that may begin to fall once it’s enacted. Our in-house pundit also provides a look inside the dealmaking that led to the Beatles ending their iTunes holdout, and handicaps the Q4 releases that have a shot at hitting seven figures during the holidays. As always, you can’t make this stuff up. (12/3a)
