Counting Crows Ditch Label

2009-03-18 by Adam Thomas EMERITUS | 10 Comments
The Counting Crows have decided to end their 18 year relationship with Geffen Records
over differences in web based marketing. Front man Adam Duritz expalined:

Quote:
But these days, it's a different world for a band than it is for a label. A lot of
people think it's a tough time to be a band but we don't feel that way. The internet
opens a world of limitless possibility, where the only boundaries are the boundaries of
your own imagination. We want a chance to push those boundaries back as far as we can.
Unfortunately, the directions we want to go and the opportunities we want to pursue are
often things that our label is simply not allowed to do.

Even a band stuck in the 90's can accept where the industry is going.

A band stuck in the 90's? Their last album made it to number 3 on the top 200 albums, and was number 1 on digital downloads. And they just got off a tour with The Who.

There just one of those hard-working bands who get by on incredible live shows and connecting with their fan base. Just because they haven't had another "Mr. Jones" doesn't mean there stuck in the 90's. They've still got a huge following.
