?Aerosmith made more money from video games than from any one of its own albums

An amazing fact, but don’t act too surprised: headlining bands have always depended on the power of their brand to move merchandise and T-shirts as much as their albums. Still, it’s a heck of a way to highlight the dilemma of the modern celebrity: who you are may be more important than what you do.

Although what you do (and how well you do it) goes a long way towards determining who you are.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
