Was (Almost Was)

I was just on the phone with Don Was. Almost.

It was actually his wife, who's working as a video editor on the Ziggy Marley project I'm working on. But I could hear Don speaking to her in the background, saying things like "Ask her this" or "Tell her that."

Most people would know Don from his novelty song, "Walk the Dinosaur," performed by his 80s band Was (Not Was) with vocals by Sweet Pea Atkinson. I always preferred "Spy In the House of Love."

I love my new consulting gig. It's opening up a whole new world to me. And when the label is the artist, and an artist that comes from such a legacy, you can actually feel good about working in the music industry.
