Peter Strand profiled in Crain’s Chicago Business
|In the HBO series “Vinyl,” Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese are bringing the 1970s music scene to life. In this Crain’s Chicago Business article, “How many Chicago lawyers once opened for Foreigner?,” Peter Strand explains why he will be tuning in. In the late 19070s Peter played bass in Yipes!, a band signed by Millennium Records, an RCA label. They released two albums, opened for Cheap Trick, Foreigner, Jefferson Starship, and Eddie Money, and played Max’s Kansas City, the New York club featured in the series.
In the article, Peter talks about how the music industry has changed over the years. “Back then, there was no MTV. Your fans didn’t know what you looked like but for photos on the album covers. You expected record sales would come from people listening to you on the radio.” Now, he says, “it's all flipped. Steely Dan never even toured back then. Today, only people who see you live will buy your record.”
