  1. This was the first time I got to see any of this drama via video. It’s interesting because through Bob’s lens (his e-mail reply to all this) he was the clear “winner” in the debate having decried Gene’s perma-salesmanship at all times and stating the he himself is in fact the voice of the people. But I think Bob came across unfortunately pretty whiny and ill-equipped to defend his position either. And at the end of the day, I must admit Gene is the one with the millions. Do I think starting a Canadian label will add to his money…not at all. The music company ship seems to have sailed. But Bob’s credentials ain’t there either. I’ll need to dig up more of these clips but is Bob the clear victor? Not as far as I’m concerned.


  2. neither guy looks very good here. the fact that gene is an ass has been been well documented, but lefsetz surprised me. his columns are usually well thought out, but apparently he’s not too good at thinking on his feet. opening with a “wtf” was probably not the best tactic.
