The formula for many successful musicians is to take their influences and mix them into something new and unique. I recently watched a few documentaries, and as a musician, I'm a bit of a nerd when it comes to music history, especially around rock and roll, and today I've got some great stories that can help your podcast.

Rockstar Lessons From the Beatles and Kiss

  • Start with your why
  • Same but different
  • Sharpen your axes
  • Make your show hard to copy
  • Sacrifices will be made
  • Friendly competition is good
  • Don't promote until your audience says its good
  • Get people talking about you
  • Money changes everything
  • Don't be bored

I think the item that really made me go "Whoa!" was the Beatles having the option to come to the US, and they postponed it until they had a hit. Likewise, Kiss walking out on a record deal as the music wasn't right.
