Hans Zimmer Pushes for Unionization

“Here’s the thing I always love about music and musicians, it really is a community. We have to protect each other because that’s how we are used to working. When we play together we have to look out for each other, we have to make room for everybody, that’s how you get a good sound.” Source:  http://www.filmmusicmag.com/?p=5344

Zebra Finches ROCK!

I came across this on a blog I read and the article was comparing the below video to the drone rock back Sunn O))).  I couldn’t help but laugh after watching the video.  If you’re familiar with the band I think you’ll get a kick out of it.
