A good interview http://www.linux-mag.com/2004-07/rundgren_01.html
No wonder there are no good videos on MTV ... or music


LM: Do you ever want to create a new groundbreaking music video with modern technologies?

RUNDGREN: I do, but there's little demand today for music videos. There used to be a thriving, hungry market for music videos, but now most of the so-called music video outlets like MTV and VH-1 are doing reality programming -- they're not filling up their time with new videos. So the obstacle for me isn't daunting technology, it's simply the fact that there's nobody to play the result.
