Fred W. McDarrah - “Jack Kerouac reading a passage from On The Road New York, February 15, 1959”
My fantasy consists of him reading these words when the photo was taken: “I even think of Old Dean Moriarty the father we never found, I think of Dean Moriarty”

“His success has been completely due to the leveling of distribution with the Internet. Because those barriers have been broken down, online sales have been amazing. His first album was a free download and everything since then has been focused on the digital side of things. All of our media primarily focuses on the digital. It’s that social profile… releasing things digitally, through Facebook, Twitter, Myspace (though that has kind of dwindled). These barriers are broken down due to the Internet. It’s not fixated on retail; it’s not fixated on major labels. Because of that, an artist like Sonny can accelerate this rapidly. Multiple Grammy nominations in two years or less! No marketing, no push at all, just connections with fans in a true way.” — Tim Smith, on Skrillex
