Holzman in LAT

SAGACIOUS QUOTE OF THE DAY: “[Labels] should not go down any single path. Chaos is something to embrace. There are many paths, and we should try all of them. If they don't work, just move on. From the publishing standpoint, our responsibility is to aggregate rights and make use of those rights. We need to loosen up our permissions and make it easier for creative people to remix songs, for example. As a label, we should never lose that umbilical thread from our gut to the music. If you take care of your artists, they will take care of you.”—Jac Holzman, Elektra Records founder, longtime music biz innovator and currently Senior Advisor to Edgar Bronfman Jr., from a Q&A in today’s L.A. Times. (9/2a)
