Tom Morello, Rage Against the Machine

"Iíve come to think of the music business as this layer of people-the managers, the attorneys, the record company executives-who are like the landlords of this building that is the music industry. The bands just rent a room for a short time. These landlords all know one another and have business dealings with each other, long before you put your band together and long after your band is dropped from the label. Their interest is more in keeping the building in good shape than in the interest of the people who check in and out."
