Good article from Commercial Appeal music writer Bill Ellis today. He writes about a revived Musicians Advisory Council, part of the Memphis & Shelby County Music Commission. Ellis views the thing with an open eye, but a skeptical one that remembers the past and listens to the present. Good stuff.
Me, I really don't think government commissions are the answer to problems with Memphis' music promotion. But you'd expect that, of course. Go to the article to see some proposed ideas and you'll see what I'm talking about.
