    Sadly yes. I spent the last 14 years in the music biz for a major retailer. I remember literally selling a million+ units a week and that was before the real dip in sales happened around 2009. It was an amazing ride. Lots of great people have been let go over the years. And now as we close up physical CD sales in the stores forever on May 1st, it will be a sad end to an era.

    Pinball is always a topic I'll go to when talking with famous artists, and just like us, their eyes light up. Many have at least a game or two in their home. I was talking to Gilby from GNR last year and he told me how all the guys in the band were given a game when it came out. He still has his. He also said Slash was constantly sketching out pinball designs, even after their game came out. How cool would another GNR game be?
