@CorrinCampbell Thanks—I'll do just about anything to get my message into 140 characters!
@LeAnnRimes Just heard R&B great @IAmCandiStaton's new cover of "Commitment." (It's AWESOME.)
@HereForTaylor8 Work it one step at a time. Who do you know who might know somebody who might know somebody? Build fans close to home first.
If I'd been smart, I'd've spent the day going to estate sales, knowing that every other vinyl junkie was lined up at a record store. #RSD14
@HereForTaylor8 Not a lot. Labels pretty much have to ask to listen to your music. You'd need a mutual acquaintance to recommend it highly.
"@Alfryer A 45. Rag Doll by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons." Ooh, I like that one...
@blaino2 The universe has been trying to tell you this for months. Tell him I said hi.
Alice Cooper told me that David Cassidy was a bad influence on him. Cassidy later confirmed this.
@frazzledsoul @shoshpd I like a person who talks about buying Wilson Phillips and Sleater Kinney in the same tweet.
All that talk about Prince's licensing deal w/WB yesterday & I didn't notice he'd snuck a new single onto the market…
