Irving Azoff Calls on Music Industry to ‘Work Together’ in NMPA Keynote 

In a keynote address at the National Music Publishers’ Assn. legendary music industry executive Irving Azoff called upon the music industry to work together.

“The music industry has never been more powerful and popular and we as an industry have never done a shittier job of rallying together as one industry,” Azoff said. “We should work together to solve the root of the problem” — fair compensation. “I had one artist who was making $450,000 a year between all of his royalties,” Azoff said. Now after the digital revolution, he is down to making “$40,000 a year.”
