The Runaways are one of the most influential bands of the 70’s- certainly the most influential all girl band of any era. And my guest today is the original lead vocalist of that group- the lovely Cherie Currie, and what a story she has to tell. Like I mentioned The Runaways basically rocked the music industry to their core with their attitude fueled performances and sexually explicit lyrics- all being fronted by a 15 year old Cherie Currie. They were wild, and drug fueled, and presented to the world as basically 'jailbait'! If you’ve seen the awesome film titled “The Runaways”, which is partially based on Currie’s brutally honest memoir then you’ll know what I’m talking about. And if you haven’t seen it – go see it!

Cherie is touring Australia in a few weeks so if you’re interested her show dates are available in the show notes at: musicbusinessfacts.com!

I hope you enjoy my conversation with this living rock legend.

My podcast today is about How to Start and Operate a Successful Independent Recording Studio, and today I talk with not one but two guests.

Rohan Sforcina and Rob Vasey come from an awesome little music studio just 30 minutes drive north of Melbourne, VIC called Four Hundered Acres Recording Studio. You can check out the awesome facilities by going to fourhundredacres.com, or by visiting the show notes at www.musicbusinessfacts.com

The guys run a great little studio and this is a cool interview where Rohan and Rob give a fantastic no-holds-barred insight into what it’s like to start and run a studio. And for those musos who aren’t necessarily interested in starting a studio- keep listening because Rohan and Rob give some fantastic tips that anyone who is about to enter the studio needs to hear.

As always I'd love to hear feedback from all of you, get in contact at: Rodney@musicbusinessfacts.com

Matt Urmy is a former touring musician, now turned tech entrepreneur. When Matt was a touring artist he often had trouble organizing his contacts, managing finances and keeping track of gigs while on the road. Sound familiar to anyone?

Anyhow, Matt actually did something about it and created a cool new web based app and company called “Artist Growth”.

Artist Growth is a great web based app that helps musicians and managers streamline the touring process. It’s designed to help you sort your finances, merchandise, royalties and much more, all in one place that’s always available online. And it’s also a great discovery tool where record company A&R reps can also potentially find your stuff as well!

Today I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to speak with Maynard James Keenan who is probably best known for his work with his bands Tool, A Perfect Circle, and Puscifer. For those of you who don’t know Maynard is also a fully-fledged entrepreneur as well with a number of cool business ventures going on. He got a vineyard & winery as well as interests in Caduceus Cellars, an LA restaurant, Cobras Matadors, and owns an organic produce market. Plus he’s an excellent musician. And he kicks butt in Brazilian jujitsu. Quite the achiever!

Today I’ve got another great guest on the show- And today it’s International licensing expert Aaron Davison, and I thought I’d make this episode of Music Business facts a bit of a focus on music licensing. Music licensing is not only a powerful promotional tool for your music but can potentially be really lucrative in terms of making some good bucks.

Dave Lombardo is a powerhouse drumming pioneer who literally changed the face of heavy metal music. His attack, speed, aggression and ingenuity on the double bass drums contributed to help make his old band Slayer, one of the most influential metal bands ever.
