Dear Duff: You're renowned not only as a musician, but recently as a business insider who gets "the biz." So how will musicians make a living "in the future" (i.e. now)? It's interesting to see you releasing an "album" (last quotes, I swear) rather than some kind of multimedia/socially networked/available-for-free expression of your art. Recently, I've been looking up your playlists scattered around the web, and making Pandora playlists. I personally would rather listen to your recommended influential music than many new albums released nowadays. Is there a way to make that pay? Then again, sometimes I just gotta crank Appetite in my car and drive. What's the future of the music business?

Best,

-- Rob Selover

Duff: I haven't got the slightest fucking notion!
