Music industry quote of the day

BMI spokescreature Jerry Bailey quoted in the Johnstown Tribune-Democrat:

Songwriters make a living a penny at a time, or a fraction of a penny at a time.

Nice of him to be so concerned about his artists. But while the artists are getting the pennies, I wonder who’s getting the dollars?
