Lester Chambers, now the pin-up boy for musician’s pain

There is online outrage circulating facebook and the internet at the moment at this story. This story confirms so many of our fears about the music industry or any situation where big business meets the little guy… what happens? The little guy gets squished. Many people have discussed the necessity of knowing the industry that you are in, this of course has been expressed in less understanding words. I agree with this on some level, but the responsibility that comes with knowledge about how an industry works should be used to foster talent, not churn up and spit out people like a hamburger factory. In this situation, people don’t get the straight story from big business, and this… no matter what his knowledge, is unfair.
