Decent Site of the Week: The Lefsetz Letter

Bob Lefsetz, music industry guru.

If you’re a music fan and are looking for invaluable insights into “the core of the music business,” then The Lefsetz Letter should be required reading. Having been published for over 25 years — first as hard copy, then an email newsletter and now in blog form — The Lefsetz Letter most definitely brings the goods. In an always an entertaining read, Bob Lesfetz examines the role of major record labels, grassroots development, downloading/file sharing, and personal reflections on music in an ‘answer-to-nobody’ manner.

Just take quick look at his rant on the VMAs and MTV’s deterioration. Or his advertising/music industry parallels. But really, it’s all in there — and it’s always an engaging, enlightening, and most importantly decent perspective from one of the music industry’s most influential analysts.
