The Namedropper Office was all abuzz yesterday when the phone rang and it was legendary label owner and A&R man Seymour Stein! We assumed he had misdialed, but no, he was phoning in to the Drop, to chat about an upcoming secret project we are working on.
If you don’t know, Seymour signed about 10-20% of your record collection; Talking Heads, The Ramones, Madonna, The Smiths…he is more of a rock star than most rock stars! Though the conversation was off the record (we never said we wouldn’t tease you…), we’re confident you’ll be reading more about Seymour in these pages soon.
Mr. S. was most delightful to speak with, coming off as more a fellow music fan than president of the beyond historic Sire Records, which he founded over 30 years ago. He rang us up to discuss the top secret project we are working on - look for an announcement soon. Did we mention yet that it’s a top secret project? That’s because it’s a secret. I’m so excited about this call I’m having my cell phone laminated!
