About a year ago, I stumbled upon a thread on the CDBaby message board.  Here’s the first post:

Great musicians needed to record cover tune for upcoming tribute album (specific song to be provided upon inquiry). Genre is blues/rock, reminiscent of The Rolling Stones or The New York Dolls. If chosen, candidate will be required to provide an album-ready recording of the song NO LATER than October 10th [2009]. Ownership of recording remains with artist, great opportunity for exposure to a wide audience. Chosen artist will be promoted in press materials carried by such high-traffic news sites as Blabbermouth, Metal Sludge, Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles,, etc. Current artist roster includes founding members of Twisted Sister, Cinderella, Quiet Riot, Danger Danger, Trixter and others. Interested parties should submit song samples via weblink only (no attachments) to the address below. You will be contacted if you are being considered.

Here’s the next post:

Thanks but no Thanks I wouldnt be caught dead on a cd with a bunch of 80s hairbands that almost destroyed rock music well maybe not Quiet Riot althought most of their music was from a band called “Slade” if this were Steve Vai, Joe Satriani or Eric Johnson I would jump at the chance…but anyway maybe more stuff like this will come along in the future….

And the thread then promptly degenerated into an intra-membership flame fest and died a quick death.

But, in order to ruin your image, you must first have one.  We were therefore immune to that peril.

CDBaby are currently accepting stories from the chronicles of independent musicians, and so Steve and I recorded a short bit about the whole affair, and I will now attempt to embed this little podcast-y endeavor riiiiiiight….

I hope it sounds ok – I had to squeeze it down a bit to fit it through WordPress’s 10mb window.  I know, I know, all you blogging cognoscenti; there are ways to embed hi-res audio into one’s post.  I’m just feeling a bit lazy tonight.

Right, so there you have it! Cheers!
