Default Re: CD Sales

CD sales as described by Mr. Peart would most likely also include internet sales. I'd blame illegal downloading before I looked at iTunes et al.

Here's a nice little article, not exactly the topic, but touches on some aspects and is generally a good read for anyone getting into the industry:

Even when signed to an "indie" label, we only saw $2 per disc sold, (which is actually a killer deal) - being truly independent and self financed is just about the only way to go if you want to actually make any money from CD sales, but yeah, we make more playing shows than we do selling merch.
