Though we’ve touched on what this is before, we have NEVER been explicit about explaining what we mean to be a DIY Rock Star and we DEFINITELY haven’t discussed why it’s necessary. (video: https://bit.ly/Ep135diyvid and podcast: https://bit.ly/EP135diypod )
What is a D.I.Y. Rock Star?
D.I.Y. Rock Stars are artists that do not rely on any formal music industry support to create, distribute, and sell their music. As far as we can tell, there have ALWAYS been D.I.Y. Rock Stars. Some examples include the techno music movement out of Detroit, Motown (in its early stages), and rap music often continues to attract D.I.Y. approaches, since that was how it began.
