A Warning About Music Businesses

RECEIVED Tue., Nov. 20, 2012

Dear Editor,
    Though I have been out of the music biz since they closed Liberty Lunch, I still play and buy the occasional instrument or stompbox. I recently discovered that Guitar Center and Musician's Friend are owned by none other than Bain Capital, made famous by former CEO and perpetual milk dud Mitt Romney.
    Needless to say, I'll never buy from either again. Sweetwater is still family-owned for mail order, or go buy from Steve at Austin Vintage Guitars at their new location. The great Republican machine may hate liberals, but it doesn't mind making money off the devil's music!
Thanks,
Mark Pratz
