Last night after I was able to reflect on things I realized that I have a lot to learn. I knew going into Portraits In The Key Of Punk Rock that there was a lot about this project that I had no idea about and as it turns out dealing with people was one of them. In my haste to get things moving as quickly as possible I didn’t take the time to really introduce myself and let people become comfortable with me before I started telling people what I wanted from them. I now realize that I may have come off as pushy and demanding, I assure everyone that it was not my intention to be that way. Truthfully I can’t do this book on my own, While I may be spearheading this project I need more help than I could have ever imagined. I have convinced myself that I am doing something that no one has ever done before and that might be true or it might not be. I obviously need help from bands and musicians, but I also need the help of managers, pr people, record labels and promoters among others. I need to forge lasting and trusting relationships with everyone and I have to show them that their trust in in me is warranted and that I have something to offer them in return for the help I am asking for. I can’t make Portraits In The Key Of Punk Rock a reality without the support and endorsement of the project by bands, record labels and promoters. I am very grateful for all the help and advice I have received so far and I will put it to good use.
