JACK ASHTON LIVE ON UDETROIT WITH BOB BAUER
Promoter Jack Ashton
My new friend Jack Ashton was interviewed today on the Bob Bauer show on UDetroit.com this new website is kicking it big time. I love that Retrokimmer is featured under the Scene Tab at the top of the UDetroit.com page.
Jack Ashton is a music industry phenomenon... A Detroit success story for sure... Jack started out in Detroit as a lead singer in a young band but made his way to Hollywood doing what he loves promoting rock music. Jack went on tour with Def Leppard and many other bands as well. He is a great guy and so generous with his time and information...
Jack gave some tips for new bands on this show today... I thought I'd share some of them with my readers...
Jack suggests that new bands have the following:
Must be on the cutting edge
Possess a sound of your own
Be unique and you can't sound dated
Creating songs that used to be... are out dated...
You can't be compared to somebody else.. be your own band
Must be able to create your own style
Bands need to be tenacious and not stop until you're a star..
You need to be what you believe in...
Jack says that Sticking with it is what really counts in this business...
