Ep:25 Kayfabe - What Do You Mean It’s Not Real?

February 19th, 2018

00:0000:00

So, at this point in the game, we all know that there's a lot of funny business going on in the music "business". Players aren't really playing, singers arent really singing.... but do we really care? Kayfabe: "The suspension of disbelief." And does that have anything to do with the level of success of an artist, at all? Robert and Jake sit down with Jeff Jones (muician, singer, songwriter, really really old dude, and Jake's brother) and discuss why record labels and Grammy awards may truly have nothing to do with the "success" of an artist at all.
