It's bad enough that the Big 5 got whittled down to the Big 4 and now The Big 3. Mainstream music culture just seems to get worse and worse. Thank God for independent artists and labels. Also, it's another sign that Occupy Wall Street is right to criticize corporate culture. I'm an independent electronic musician myself. www.nairbomanblog.blogspot.com

All the major label artist rosters combined were already small enough when there were the Big 5. Now with the Big 3, hot rotations of FM radio stations will become even smaller and ticket prices of these acts look likely to skyrocket even more since Irving Azoff's Ticketmaster/Livenation and Jimmy Iovine's Interscope/Universal Records are affiliated in some way, aren't they? Who would have guessed this would happen one day when they bought their copy of The Eagles' Greatest Hits?

What will become of EMI?
