Mike Errico on the BBC

Good times w/ The BBC (@bbcnews) discussing why we don’t have long song intros like “Hotel California” anymore, but we do have 8-hour-long compositions you’re meant to sleep through.

Special Thanks: Rob Thomas

“Three things in music that will never go out of style: the song; the song; and the song.” Special thanks to my guest speaker, Rob Thomas, who took time out to come to NYU and talk to the students about how he approaches songwriting, collaboration and “the beast” that is the industry.
