This is a blog about my upcoming book, Appetite for Self-Destruction: The Spectacular Crash of the Record Industry in the Digital Age, due January 6, 2009, from Free Press/Simon & Schuster. It's a narrative, with a lot of stories about people, pop stars, high-tech inventors and big-time record executives, beginning with the adoption of the CD in the early '80s. Then it progresses through Napster and iTunes through the recent era of plunging sales and record-label layoffs.
I'll post here about upcoming events and media appearances and maybe some general stuff about the record business. (Guns N' Roses sales, anybody?) Jill the Publicist has been setting up a bunch of radio and television stuff in early January. If you need a review copy, she's your person.
For now, here are two upcoming book signings near my home in Denver, Colorado:
7:30 p.m., Tuesday, January 6
2526 E. Colfax Ave., Denver, CO
7:30 p.m., Thursday, January 8

Hope to see you there!
