Thought I'd share a little story. Maybe others can chime in with other good guys of the music industry as well.

When I was 26, I was living in San Diego and was running the programs at a community center. One of the parents that volunteered was a guy named Dave Kaplan. Solid dude. He ran a record label that he created called Surf Dog (Solana Beach, CA). He knew of my interest in music and we chatted a bunch about the industry.

He helped me meet Derek Trucks the first time around. I told Dave about the DTB and he reached out to Derek's manager and arranged my passes. How cool! That intro led me to secure a few benefit concert dates with the DTB in the coming years.

Fast forward 9-10 years, Dave's company (Surf Dog) partners with Eric Clapton to release his latest album. How cool??!! An underdog, indie label works its way up to releasing music with the best.

Here is a little article on the story.

Reminds me of the famous Hunter Thompson quote :

The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.
