"That was multi barbarians which was released in nineteen sixty six on Laurie records. And that's the version that I have the forty five. It's also probably much more well known for being on the nuggets box set. The barbarians formed in the early sixties. Right around the Cape Cod in Massachusetts and they seemed like they were on their way to start 'em like they were doing really well. They even appeared in this movie. Which is this concert film called? Tammy T. A. M. I. Which was Teenage Music. International or something The acronym stood for a couple of different things but he appeared in that concert film alongside people like the rolling stones and James Brown among others in. Its most known itself because of the James Brown performance. It's incredible Keith. Richards as even come out and said that choosing to follow James Brown was the single worst decision who that the band had ever made in their career but I think he probably said that before. Steel wheels the biggest draw to the band. The barbarians was Victor Multi Moulton. Who was as you heard? A person who had lost his hand in nineteen fifty nine while playing with a homemade pipe bomb. I don't know if there are non homemade bombs but it always says homemade pipe bomb anyway he learned to play drums after that debacle and he played them with a hook and sort of looked like captain hook from Peter Pan. Wait a second so he learned how to play drums after he blew his hand off with a pipe bomb. I believe he was playing drums but I think he really became proficient. After NOCA- interesting the song was written by a fellow barbarian. He joined a little bit later. sixty five. I think his name is Doug. Morris spend the only reason I bring that up is because he is now the CEO of Sony for the studio recording multi was I think the only member of the barbarians there and he's backed not by them but by Lavar helm and the hawks who were also at that same time supporting Bob Dylan multi. After the recording was adamant that he didn't want the song to be released as a single at all. It was his way to personal so Doug Morris wrote the song but he didn't write the monologue bitter or multi just ad-libbed that and who it was just something. He ended up not wanting released at all. But Laurie records did it. Anyway and the band was so mad that they left the label and signed to Mercury and then they sort of stalled out and they broke up in sixty. Seven multi is actually mentioned by the Ramones in their song. Do you remember rock and Roll Radio where it says? Will you remember Jerry Lee John Lennon T. REX and all multi? Which is him if you've ever heard that didn't know he's at least one of my top three single handed drummers he's got to be in the top three five. I think the message I got. Maybe don't play with homemade. Pipe bomb as by Obama or the the alternative messages you can still be a rockstar if you play with homemade pipe bombs so I think it gave people hope because in the song he conquered. It's inspirational tone way. Absolutely he doesn't mention pipebombs on the song though does He. Now it doesn't matter. Pipebombs eaters mentions that they lost his hand. Seems like he really Kinda glazing over an important part of your story that but that's just me all right for my song. It's a a band with all their limbs. As far as I know it's a scrawl in the name of the song is your mother. Wants to know.

"The civil rights in hip hop generations. It was also attracting increasing numbers of white listeners. Gangsta rap has become incredibly popular and profitable bolt by selling lyrics about black on black violence to a young mainstream audience that wouldn't dream of going anywhere near a ghetto now. After billboard switched over to soundscan rookie companies got regular confirmation that hip hop Saudince had expanded beyond its original base of black and Brown kids coast cities even some radio stations band rep with explicit lyrics others embrace the music changing their four minutes to all hip hop all the time young. TV wraps was the network's highest rated show. Oh the La Times described rap as a seven hundred million dollars a year. Business rap is essentially a black art form. But it's a gold mine for white white recording companies which artists say encourage the hardcore lyrics because they sell and surprisingly seventy percent of rap. Music is brought by white. Young people got this Blue Tang clan. LISTEN TO SNOOP DOGG. Obviously that's real popular. I think it's a way of rebelling against they've grown up with and It's something that's a little dangerous without getting too close to the reality rookie. Companies companies were happy to capitalize on increasing sales from black and white record buyers but they also faced increasing criticism from black and white cultural conservatives. William Bennett made his name as Ronald Reagan's secretary of Education in George H. W. Bush's national drug czar. After he left the White House been it became a cultural warrior. He looked like a founding father. Silver haired jowly in very very serious. He thought of himself as a national moral compass and he talked about the importance of teaching values children.

But we're both worried about society. Our children live in today. Here's a Peter Bailey. Who worked for Tucker? Then in this instance I consider that music so destructive that if if I had to work with Bill Bennett in ought to do something with it then I was prepared to do to kick off their partnership Bennett. Tucker states or dramatic appearance Time Warner's nineteen ninety-five shareholders meeting much as Charlton Heston had done three years earlier. Tucker hit bought ten shares of Time Warner stock which entitled her to speak at the meeting she came prepared to put on a show and they said she came in there dressed like you thought she was like the superstar of all superstars came in there with a turban on everything and she said well she walked in. They had a black woman who had a position with time and she was kind of directly to seat. It was kind of near the back of the room. And Doc Atocha fishy wrote right by took receipt dated dare. Ask Her to move Tucker read lyrics from songs about to pack and Snoop Doggy Dogg Dog. CEO Jeff Levine. How Long Time Warner put profit before principle? Here's Tucker described the event at a press conference and I I was able to address the chairman. The board of directors the stockholders and Time magazine reported that after. I finished a seventeen minute address that there was one third of the stockholders stockholder's applauding so we are making an impact. Because of our children and Gangster C delores Tucker certainly wasn't the first to attack rap lyrics but the Tucker Bennett alliance was something new. The beginning of a bipartisan National Campaign Against Gangsta Rap Bob Dole the Senate majority leader Who is on his way to the presidential nomination got on board? A line has been crossed not just of taste but of human dignity and Decency Agency. It's crossed every time sexual. Violence has given a catchy tune on talking about groups like Cannibal Corpse Geto boys and two live up through the mainstream of Evans. He must come to an end but only the entertainment industry recognized and shoulder their responsibility responsibility Benton Tucker singled out time Warner and especially its partial subsidiary interscope records which handled distribution for shook knight's death row label Able Tucker told The New York Times. interscope is a company. Time Warner needs to get out of business with immediately death row when it's artists were furious. Areas should night ran a two page ad in the source featuring a list of freedom fighters under the names Martin Luther King Nelson Mandela Malcolm X.. Wchs with C delores Tucker crossed out with the red line in gang circles. Crossing got a name meant someone was marked for death. Here's to park in nineteen ninety-five interview from Dan Prison. I don't understand how delores Tucker and Bob Dole and all these other duties how they can say like gangster music. My never in classical music is gangs music and if you really. I know they haven't listened to my tape. I know somebody geese them up to go attack and now what it does is they. They attacked a few famous rappers. The now then themselves a famous deloris Tucker just want to get a name which she won't find because this it'll fe I don't I don't see us say helping the black community and strike back at us We saw the black community. We are part of the black community but as far as eventually Time Warner cracked I the company fired Doug Morris the executive executive who had made the interscope deal Tucker took the credit. I predict that interscope records will fall next. She said in a statement behind the scenes Tucker head even bigger plans. She set up a meeting with Shug night and pitched him on a new venture. That would put out positive hip hop records. She said she convince time. More order to put up eighty million dollars should night wasn't interested interscope death-row filed lawsuits against Tucker alleging that she was interfering in a contractual sexual relationship. Tucker never became a rap mogul herself but she did score a win in her campaign against interscope in September nineteen ninety-five Time Warner sold. Its stake in the label back to co-founders Ted Field in Jimmy Wien Time Warner now involved in a huge merger deal with Turner Company. Is this cutting itself loose from one of its most controversial and profitable holdings Time Warner today announced. It's selling off a fifty percent stake in a record distributor specializing using in Gangsta rap. Music but suckers victory was short. Lived after Time Warner fired Doug Morris. He took a job running. MCA records within a few months. MCA bought that fifty percent stake and interscope for two hundred million netting. The labels founders ninety million dollar profit rep was now a big business and that meant it was too valuable to contain. Here's Dan Sharma's he's the author of the book the Big payback the history of the business of hip hop. You're you're not going to be able to kill Gangsta rap certainly and you're not gonNA be able to kill hip hop in general. It's just going to be like whack a mole. If it gets too hot you tamp it down fan but it's GonNa pop up somewhere else. Because ultimately what really mattered was capital and how much money everything would make the purchase of interscope made. MCA One of the biggest biggest labels in the music industry rename Universal Music Group. Today it's the largest nine months after the sale. The top four slots in the billboard album from charts belong to Bush no doubt Snoop doggy. Dogg into pock. All interscope artists Tucker retreated from the spotlight after the INTERSCOPE upsell. She was not taking care of her health with she said because I committed here to keep keep battling this gang TERRESA. That's strongest strongly. She felt about it so he he didn't do anything that he should probably should have done. health-wise to park last Tucker in a song called how do you want it. which came came out as a single in June nineteen ninety-six.

"The history of the music business on June first two thousand eight a fire swept through the back lot of Universal Studios Hollywood and devoured, what was known at the time is the video vault. But there's also audio when those volved music masters, owned by Universal Music Group, including hundreds of thousands of regional recordings from people like Aretha Franklin Billie holiday, buddy Holly, as well as more recent hit makers Queen Latifah Mary, J, Blige, and the roots, and it was all kept somewhat under wraps for a long time by PR crisis managers and lawyers, it's all detailed in a piece called the day, the music burned, and it was written by journalists Jodi Rosen, and Jodi joins us in studio. Welcome to all of Jodi, thank you. So this fire happened eleven years ago, it wasn't accident as a result of some. Work that was being done on the lot. How long did it take to contain this fire and at first what seemed to be the damage so yeah, the fire moved very quickly kind of whipped across the back lot there and engulfed? This building video vault which sat very close about fifteen yards from a King Kong, encounter attraction. Well this this place Universal Studios. Hollywood is both a movie back lot, where sets are for filming TV shows and motion pictures, and it's a theme park with amusements and attractions for tourists. So any case, the middle of the night. We middle night. It was about five three late in the m- close four in the morning when the fire started move quickly across the lot in Gulf this building and the building was fully engulfed. Very quickly. The fire was still burned. Smoldered for close to twenty four hours. Eventually the firefighters had to kind of switch tactics. And they decided they needed to kind of wreck the building use heavy equipment to kind of to even be able to reach the source of the fire within the building. And in the process, what was what very little was left of the contents of that building were smashed and burned. Now, this was reported in the news and the New York Times and the LA times. But as you write in your piece, quote, there's never been a full accounting of film and video losses in the fire. Why not? Well, I think for the same reason that there was no accounting of the audio losses in the fire. There was very good public relations management on the part of two companies here I write about Universal Music Group, the world's largest record company. The, the backlots was owned by NBC universal, which is the parent company controlled Universal Studios. That's where a lot of their film, and video assets were in fact, most of the building was devoted to storing those assets. So there's a lot of video and film stuff that was in this building that there's journals have not delved into what was lost there. I suspect that may happen now and maybe a little bit of a hard climb because I'm sure that, that the, the companies not so eager to let people know what is lost there. But that's the reason. Well, there's a lot of misinformation early on person purposely placed or journalists or columnists directed in one. One one way or another who is doing damage control. And what were they trying to avoid so in the case of Universal Music Group the? It's the people who are doing the damage control with the public relations department. They were the ones we're actually speaking to journalists I saw some emails internal correspondence other documents in my research reporting of this, peach jested, or suggested tip, rich showed that some top executives senior executives at Universal Music Group, were were on emails where this kind of strategy was discussed or at least the results of efforts to spin journalists to downplay the severity of this event. So there was the top officials were short of the very top official who is Doug Morris, the CEO and chairman of the company were copied on those emails, but it was the PR department who were sent out. They were the foot soldiers who sent out to talk to the press. And the reason I think that, that they wanted to put this message out there was because what we're seeing now because it would cause embarrassment and recrimination 's for. For the company because there is a great loss here of super important, cultural artifacts, and especially because it would put the record company in a tricky position with, with music artists with fame, very famous people recording artists who may not have owned the intellectual property in that fault, although some of them did or own the physical property, but they certainly have vested interests in their recordings. So that's kind of tamped down. I think they didn't really want artists to know what was lost. My guess is Jody Rosen. He wrote a great piece called the the day. The music burned. It was in a recent editions New York Times magazine. So what did you first hear about the story and then what sense? Your, your journalist rate are up there. There's more to this. So I, I heard about it. It's funny. I, I, of course heard about the fire back in two thousand eight. So when I I recall when I first learned about. Sort of the story behind the fire, the more I recalled this event, but at the time, you know, like everyone else, I didn't think anything of it other than there's a bad fire on a kind of movie back lot king. Conrad Burt up and set we're back to the future with film, burnt up that sort of thing, how it came to. My attention was I got a hold obtain. Some documents and. Significant number of documents. And I started to look at those things, and the truth is, honestly, didn't exactly new know what they meant new didn't know what they meant at that time. That's interesting. You're reading through some of the I know there's something here and I'm not sure what I'm supposed to write. It wasn't it wasn't legible to me, it was legible, and that could read the words on the page, but the, the meaning of the words wasn't entirely clear, and it took some time for me to kind of sift through this paperwork, and Acklin myself. And then, then the misbegotten to story merged, and it was then that I began to contact people. Some of whose names are in those documents others who I figured out might know about these events begin have conversations some conversations on the records that where I where I had to speak to sources who couldn't say very much at all or who rebuffed me. But it was it was a long time and kind of piecing the events together and then frankly, just wrapping my head around the meaning of this event, because a master recording is unique peculiar sort of artifact and the nature of the loss, even for someone like me who spent a lot of time writing about music in my career wasn't immediately apparent we'll talk about this -nificant of the masters. So it wasn't a whistle blower to somebody just drop these documents in your lab, or I, I prefer not to say how I got hold them. But I did get hold of them for the people who are reticent to talk to you. Why was that? Why didn't they wanna go on the record, I think in in nearly all cases they were concerned about individuals? Intern about their job security didn't want to say things that could that would get anger, the record company right now? We most of the music, commercially released popular music, most of the music period that was released in the twentieth, century. And Ian, what we've had of the twenty-first controlled by three giant record, companies, which in turn are subsidiaries of massive media, conglomerates. So there's, there's not that many jobs out there for anybody in the music business. And so it's important, I think, for some people is important to not find themselves in a position where they were maybe revealing too much about what they knew because it could impact their livelihoods, but you did find someone who wanted to talk Randy. Aronson archivist. And this is something that has weighed on him for years. How did you track down Randy? And what piece of information that he gives you that you think really helped you craft the story? Yes. So I should say that it wasn't only Randy, and there's people who are on the record in the peace who also helped me understand this. But, but so Randy Aronson was the guy who he was director of operations at Universal Music Group for some years. In fact, back to back to the time when Universal Music didn't exist. And it was called MCI records. So he knew a lot about this event, kind of knew where the bodies were buried. I came to him as I said long after I learned about the story, some people, I think think that Randy blew the whistle on this and that high. But that's not how the events occurred I had his name documents, I became clear to me that he was one of the guys who was there. And he had not long before I contacted him or period of months before it contact him and lost his job. So he was more at liberty speak than others. But as you say, it was not a situation where he. He's not he's not a guy who's bitter about the loss of his job. He wanted another job in the music industry. But he was not a person. I think I can say this definitively who was out to get you MG. He loves music, he loves music, extremely passionate about the stuff that was in this vault that was in the care of his care in the care of his colleagues and was genuinely traumatized by this event. You know, he's he said to me this making the piece that he really feels like he has PTSD around this event. And, and it's something that he thinks about a lot. So he was when I finally reached him, I found that he was very eager to kind of unburden himself of this. Both information that was helpful to me. But also to help me. Understand, really, the magnitude of the event emotionally for, for lots of people actually who cared about these this material that was in there as music and art first and foremost, and not as a corporate asset. My guess is Jody Rosen. He wrote the piece called the day. The music burned we're talking about that day was June of two thousand eight when there's a huge fire on the universal lot, and a whole lot of music, masters were burned during that fire, and I want people to understand its rewrite about it really, really beautifully about the importance of a master, and what that really means for audio files, and that really means for people who create music and make music because I think a lot of people don't understand what really what there isn't a master. And why it's unique and why it's special and why losing one is such a big deal. Right. So, so a master recording is the original of a record. It's like it's the, the primary source document. There's various been various types of master's that have existed through the history of recorded sound. But the easiest way to talk about all of these masters, as a group, is to say simply that, it's the, it's the first copy the reason that that's so important is the history of the music business is a history of format changes of different delivery systems for music music has reached audiences..

I came to him as I said long after I learned about the story, some people, I think think that Randy blew the whistle on this and that high. But that's not how the events occurred I had his name documents, I became clear to me that he was one of the guys was there and he had not long before I contacted him or period of months before it got lost his job. So he was more at liberty speak than others. But as you say, it was not a situation where he, he's not, he's not a guy who's bitter about the loss of his job. He wanted another job in the music industry. But he was not a person. I think I can say this definitively who was out to get, you know, UM. Gee, he loves music. He loves music, extremely passionate about the stuff that was in this vault that was in the care of his care in the care of his colleagues and was genuinely traumatized by this event. You know, he's he said to me, this didn't make the peace that he really feels like he has PTSD around this event. And, and it's something that he thinks about a lot. So he was when I finally reached him, I found that he was very eager to kind of unburden himself of this. Both information that was helpful to me. But also did help me. Understand, really the magnitude of the event at emotionally, for, for lots of people actually who cared about these this, the material that was in there as music and art first and foremost, and not as a corporate asset. My guess is Jody Rosen who wrote the piece called the day the music burned. We're talking about that day was June of two thousand eight when there was a huge fire on the universal lot, and a whole lot of music, masters were burned during that fire, and I want people to understand its rewrite about it really, really beautifully about the importance of a master, and what that really means for audio files, and what that really means for people who create music and make music because I think a lot of people don't understand what really what there isn't a master. And why it's unique and why it's special and why losing one is such a big deal. Right. So, so a master recording is the original of a record. It's like it's the, the primary source document. There's various been various types of master's that have existed through the history of recorded sound. But the easiest way to talk about all of these masters, as a group, is to say simply that, it's the, it's the first copy the reason that that's so important is the history of the music business is a history of format changes of different delivery systems for music music has reached audiences..

"There is in the hall of fame with show and just the this terrific, terrific crooked player. Now, Michael, this is the tweet I was talking about earlier says, Crosby mcdavid was great. No denying that, but how can you say that the Crosby Matthews was a dud or one? Nothing games, not exciting to you. I said Doug Morris far as the matchup between Crosby and mcdavid. The game was fine. It was one goal game, and then there was a couple of late goals by Malchanov Tang. But my point is is that Crosby had one shot on goal. Matthew said three and I believe all three came in the third period. I don't think he had a shot on goal the first forty minutes. So I, I guess I was just talking about. I was expecting more opportunities. There was it was a fine game. Don't get me wrong. But like last night you saw mcdavid Crosby both score both get involved wide open. That's kind of what I was expecting out of. Pittsburgh. Toronto. I didn't get that. I'm not saying the game wasn't entertaining, but it wasn't nearly what we saw last night. Yeah. I mean, I think you know, we have high expectations right when we have these type of matchups and you know, I the other day that, you know, can we watch one, nothing game where there's a great flow back and forth, and great saves, and and it's breathtaking. Absolutely there's, you know. But I think it's interesting when guys score and we get this back and forth. Those are the games that people tend to remember now. I mean, like the Leafs and Blackhawks game early in the season when there was three goals scored in the last minute and thirty seconds of the game accents overtime and Mathewson Cain, we're going back and forth. You know, those are the kind of games have become even more memorable. So you know the the Leafs penguins game was was a good game. But I think what takes the game last night to another level is the fact that you know these guys actually on this war board and and impacted the game that way. And it was kind of a back and forth throughout the night. So I could see where you're coming from. I don't know if you know the that leaps or at least penguins game was. It was a pretty good game. I think you're just because so many interesting things happened in the game. It was. It was a lot of fun and hopefully I had five and last night you had five guys score two goals. There was five multi goal scores in that game because the that had three guys score to each with Crosby in with the horn quiz and with the big guy on defense, big rig of and you know the Oilers had a couple of guys square period goes, I don't know how many games we've seen. You've called a bunch of games this year one, five guys, five goal games, right? I mean, that's that's unique gained right there. Then it's and you really appreciate those six, five games. We've talked about it so many times before I'll take one nothing, but you know, I, I need shots if you've got forty shots. A piece in the game ends one. Nothing. That's a thriller what you want to get away from those mid nineties. You know, on goal game or both teams combined for thirty shots. That's what you want to try to get away from. And I think the league is really been able to shed themselves of that reputation for sure. David. Hi, NASA, very interesting question. Not sure if you saw the news but ex avalanche defenseman Adam Foote was named head coach of the w. h. ELS Colona rockets other than winning two cups and his number fifty, two retired..
