Dave Hooper Comments on SXSW.

As always, Dave is not lacking for strong opinions.

Ever since we started this band I've tried to learn as much as I can about the music business. I've done everything I can to try to understand what it is that seperates the people who accomplish their goals (whatever those may be, from getting signed to just having a solid regional fanbase) from the people who get burnt out and give-up.

My conclusion?

You have to be really stubborn and patient. The overnight success is a myth.
You also have to have good music and an ability to connect with people.

Without that second part, noting you do will matter.
