Music Monday: How to dismantle an ISP bomb

Posted By on Mon, Sep 6, 2010 at 4:47 PM

We're not entirely convinced that loquacious manager Paul McGuinness and his perennial clients U2 are the best people to pull the music industry out of its 10-year tailspin, but GQ Magazine clearly thinks so.

How else to explain the rock warhorse stable-master's 10-million word opus, inventively titled "How To Save the Music Industry."

McGuinness, who managed the somewhat less memorable Spud before stumbling upon U2, spends the article rehashing his long-held — and not unreasonable — argument that any industry turnaround will require getting tough with Internet Service Providers, so that they in turn will get tough with users who engage in illegal file-sharing.

And as you can plainly see from the picture above, Bono, the Edge and McGuinness know a thing or two about getting tough (and also making money). So be careful out there, OK?
