Recently having a conversation with Loudwire, Twisted Sister guitarist Jay Jay French commented on a statement by Elon Musk who said that there’s more to be learned about business by dealing drugs than attending college lectures.
Here’s what the guitarist commented:
“I survived it, I survived the multiple ODs, I survived the multiple – almost murdered – and so yeah… I guess so, I mean if he actually said that he kudos to him.
”I will take a street person’s knowledge over any academic any day of the week in business because you learn how to do a deal with people in business so I will say that for sure.
“And, by the way, rock ‘n’ roll, let me be clear, is a criminal enterprise. The record labels are criminals. It’s simple as that — they’re just legal criminals.
”So when you’re in a cesspool of criminality, whether it’s obvious criminality, in other words, whether it’s blue-collar criminality where someone is threatening your life with a gun or it’s white-collar criminality, you’re dealing with criminals.”
