Industry Profile: Michael Goldstein

— By Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen

In August 2005, Michael Goldstein, an entertainment industry professional with over 20 years experience in multi-platform programming, development and production, brand-building and related promotion, founded RockPoP Gallery to showcase the best artistic and photographic talent from all areas of today's music industry. It has become the fine art community's home on the Web when collectors want to see the latest work presented by the best artists in their respective fields; when they want to find out more about collecting these works and preserving their collections; and a place to share related experiences with others, including the artists who create them.

RockPoP Gallery is dedicated to bringing customers the best selection of limited-edition, rock music album/CD cover-related art prints, photos and related collectibles available on the market today- with a focus on album cover and CD cover imagery from the leading artists in their respective fields, combined with an in-depth product descriptions, available custom framing services, and a no-hassle guarantee of satisfaction.

"Our mission is to introduce fine art collectors to both established and rising illustrators and photographers," states Mike, "and to exhibit these fine works both online and through a series of public events and to become a respected, relied-upon source of information and a community for collectors and the artists they want to know.

Mike says he's had the privilege of working with a number of artists and photographers on projects related to his previous roles as vice president of Interactive Production for Fuse's parent company, Cablevision Systems (1995-2005) and as a founder and vice president of Interactive Development and Production at Fuse (2000-2005), the NYC-based music video cable TV network,.

"Over the years, I've slowly built a collection of these works of art," he informs, "and every visitor to my home or office would marvel at the variety and the artistry -- 'Where did you get all of these? They're amazing!' I've been asked. I loved being able to share the history of each piece and talking with them about the artist who produced the work, the musical artist who influenced the work and even the state of the world at the time each one was created. Eventually, I figured out that there are a lot of people who have the same passion -- or is it a sickness? -- for this artwork as I have and therefore it just made sense that I'd open a business like this to invite everyone to visit and join as part of the RockPoP Gallery community."

"We have the works of over 20 different music-related fine art photographers and illustrators with works ranging from $100 to $2, 500," he says. "Most are in the $300 - $750 range for signed, limited editions, along with a nice selection of music action figures from $15 - $40; statues from $100 - $150; gold records with great album covers; and other collectibles."

At Fuse, Michael led the teams that developed and launched the Network's Fuse-TV web-site and two Video-On-Demand services (www.fuseondemand.com and "Fuse Interactive" for Cablevision's iO service). He also led efforts to build exposure for interactive products and increased web site traffic to over 1 million unique visitors per month within two years within a highly competitive landscape. This allowed online ad sales team to reach sales goals in their first year of operations.

Michael built unique Web-to-Air products for Fuse's multi-platform showcase productions - Dedicate Live! (text dedications to TV), IMX (online stock market with live show components), and Video IQ (live mobile to Web show synchronized with on-air game show).

As vice president of Interactive Production at Cablevision, Mike was responsible for product creative, production scheduling and budgeting, staffing, studio build-out and the ongoing evaluation of related technologies for all Cablevision-owned interactive programming and distribution businesses. He was a key member of the senior team that developed and deployed Cablevision's first broadband/cable modem service - Optimum Online. It developed programming for Cablevision's various Video-On-Demand trials and provided consulting and development/production services for Cablevision's Rainbow TV Networks (AMC, Bravo, IFC, etc.), MSG Networks, Radio City Music Hall, The Wiz (retail), via an in-house production staff and working studio.

Prior to these positions, Mike founded several companies. He created and managed DIC Interactive in Burbank, Calif. (1993-96), where he was responsible for strategic planning; business development; project budgeting and management; overseeing all production; editor/publisher of the Cap Cities/ABC New Media Newsletter; other PR-related activities for DIC (a division of DIC Entertainment, L.P. (then, a unit of Capital Cities/ABC, Inc. and the largest supplier/licensor of animated and live-action children's TV programming in the world).

In 1988, he founded Media Resources of PCC Group in Brea, Calif., where he served as director of marketing (1988-92) and president (1992-93). The company was a leading developer, manufacturer and publisher of "multimedia" hardware and software products for personal computers, his responsibilities included the development of its business plan and all marketing, sales and product-related decision-making, reporting directly to the CEO of our parent company. Additional responsibilities included: vendor relations, public relations with the trade, consumer and financial press, trade-show co-ordination, major account sales and all contract and license negotiations.

Mike's professional affiliations include NARAS (Recording Academy/Grammy Foundation); a founding member of the AIAS (Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences; CGDA (Computer Game Developers Assn.); and AIM (Association for Interactive Media).

Mike has been a featured speaker on a variety of industry trade show panels concerning the multimedia business. His hobbies include playing several instruments (primarily drums & guitar), collecting Contemporary art, boxing, racquetball and motorcycles .


Experience & Advice
When you work in a field where your chief constituencies are technical people, creative types and lawyers/finance/business development folks, you try and learn the jargon that is important to each. Over time, though, I tended to forget that some folks were not picking up the lingo of the other groups, and so I would find myself explaining things to people in terms that, when all was said and done, they did not understand. At Fuse, this was called speaking in French, and I was fluent in that language. You then spend a lot of time going over the same material again so I learned to spend a little time learning a lot more about my audience before speaking.

Where do you get your RockPoPGallery inventory?
In most cases, I'm working directly with the artist or photographer who owns the rights to the image or images and is publishing limited editions of those images. In some cases I work with the artist's/photographer's publisher if they've chosen to work with a third party. I don't buy from individuals or from any place where I can't be sure of the provenance of a print. It's just too risky.

Do you also have auctions as well as straight sales?
We don't do auctions although we've donated works to auctions, such as the ones for the Grammy Foundation, MusiCares, or Max's Kansas City Foundation. I'm working on another exhibition that will include a fund-raising auction component that will be the first auction we've managed on our own.

Are the musicians involved in providing material?
It varies from case to case. Who owns the rights is a complicated issue, made even more complicated today as the artists and record labels are now looking for new sources of revenues to offset the drop in record sales. In some cases the musicians are involved in the production of the limited editions of their works and either are paid to sign a certain number of prints or receive a license fee for the use of their images.

In most cases, the artist or photographer owns the image outright and has come to terms with the musical art--or their management or the record label--to be able to produce fine art prints. Also, in most cases, that's the extent of their rights as the acts or the labels own the rights for most other types of merchandising based on those images.

Who are the most popular musicians?
In terms of unit sales, metal acts seem to have the most voracious fans - Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Ozzy, etc., and they buy the widest range of products. This has been followed by hip-hop fans, punk fans and then prog-rock fans. In terms of higher-end fine art sales, no one specific act, which means that I've to keep the collection pretty broadly-based.

Who are the most popular illustrators and photographers?
In terms of page views - Elliott Landy, Storm Thorgerson, George DuBose, Paul Whitehead, Gerald Scarfe.

Do you sell concert posters?
When I launched the gallery, I wanted to keep the focus on the works of particular artists who created iconic cover artwork. In many cases these same people also created poster art, and so I ventured a bit into these works too. A good example is photographer Karl Ferris, who did the great Hendrix covers, such as Are You Experienced and Electric Ladyland. He teamed up with Bob Masse to produce a series of limited-edition posters that feature Karl's photos of Hendrix, Cream, and Donavan matched with Bob's fantastic graphics and lettering.

Beyond that, I've added a small number of limited-edition/signed concert posters - Emek's work, Mark Arminski's work, Justin Hampton's work, etc. - when I find the images particularly beautiful or compelling. In so far as other posters are concerned, there are a number of galleries that specialize in that area so I will refer customers to those sites if they're looking for a broad selection and a reliable source.

Why did you start the featured weekly Cover Story on your website?
I started writing Cover Stories on a regular basis in April. I'd done some interviews of Grammy award-winning and IMA winners from 2005 and 2006-- artists and photographers for my site as a way to give site visitors a bit more background into what it takes to make a record cover/package. As you will note on my site, I tend to provide a lot of information for each work of art. It's hard enough to get people to consider buying an expensive work of art online just by a photo/scan of the work. I knew that I'd want to add a lot more info on each item so that collectors would have a better chance of connecting with a piece. In talking with the artists whose works are in my gallery, I found that many of them had a lot of detailed info about the making of each piece, so interviewing them and creating an article from those interviews was just a natural extension. I decided early on to also begin interviewing artists and photographers who are not in the RockPoP Gallery collection; just because I can't/don't sell a work of art doesn't mean that there's not a great back story to the image.

Regarding the decision of what is included - I've a list of photographers and illustrators who have done cover art, and I started there, but since then I've met some new people through the people I've interviewed, while I've met others simply by doing research on a cover I know or like. No real pattern so far: I'm just hoping that I can keep doing these weekly.

Is the Cover Story weekly email a way to attract potential buyers to your site?
I really don't have a Cover Story email other than to a select group of people who've either agreed to feature my articles from time to time or people I know who have said that they want to get it. The general public reads the articles on my blog or on other sites that have agreed to carry it. While traffic to my gallery site has increased some 20-25% since I started writing the articles, I can't honestly say that it has resulted in a significant increase in sales. A collector just wants to know that they're buying from someone reputable, someone who offers great service, and someone who can help them either build a good collection or provide them with advice on a really nice gift, and that's what we do here at RockPoP Gallery. On the flip side, I have added a couple of new artists' works to my gallery collection.

How did Fuse differ from MTV?
I can only speak to this subject from the standpoint of what we looked to accomplish when we launched the network, first MMUSA--MuchMusicUSA - the predecessor to Fuse--then Fuse:

a) to bring music back to music television--i.e., play music videos when the competition had dramatically reduced their play lists;

b) to present a wider variety of musical styles - one of our original tag lines was: the alternative to mainstream music television. We had shows that fully explored what was new and hot in indie rock, metal, hip-hop, etc.;

c) we realized that our target audiences were trendsetters and took advantage of many emerging content delivery platforms - TV, the Web, video on demand, mobile - and so we had to create our programming to work on these different platforms. When we started delivering video to the Web, we didn't try to deliver the same stuff we shot for TV. We shot special segments that were different in terms of their length--30 seconds to 3 minutes max)--in terms of how they were framed--a lot of close-ups so that you could still make out who was who on a 320x240 screen--and in terms of content, often, uncensored;

d) we made certain that every show had an active online--and then online and mobile--component and, in some cases, the online/mobile component actually drove the show. Shows such as Dedicate Live--which featured live text messages laid on top of music videos; IMX--a "Squackbox-like" show where we ran a stock exchange based on the popularity of different acts and videos; and Tastemaker--where kids uploaded videos of themselves selling themselves as experts about certain styles of music--were the first of their kind; and

e) we differed from the Viacom competition in a number of other ways, mostly due to that we only had a few people doing a zillion different things and little money to work with. We used to joke - only partly kidding - that our entire production budget for the network was often less than that of a single MTV show, and yet, we managed to build an entire 24-hour-a-day programming schedule and grow the number of subscribers from less than 10 million when we started--when MuchMusic in the U.S. was simply a re-broadcast of the Canadian network--to over 40 million, and with an advertiser list that was top-notch. This was aided in no small part by an approach to marketing that was pretty bold. We had an ever-changing network identity package--over 50 logos!--and pulled off some pretty gutsy marketing stunts, including renting a billboard directly across the street from MTV's TRL studio in 2003. Whenever they pointed a camera to face Times Square, there was our Sally Struthers "Save the Music Video" billboard! And, let's not forget who made William Hung's "She Bangs" music video.

Are there any artists and/or photographers you have been trying to get but have not been able to?
Yes. In some cases, it's simply that they've a deal in place--sometimes, an exclusive deal, as in the case of Baron Wolman--that precludes them from adding any more distribution. In other cases, there are folks who didn't retain the rights to their images for this purpose, so while I'd like to be able to get them, they're simply not available. At this point I've a pretty broad offering, and since I don't want to dilute the efforts to promote what I have, I'm only taking on new artists on rare occasions.

What have the artist's managers comments to you been like?
There have been a couple of cases where the featured musical act or their management has seen a print being promoted and was curious as to how I came about having it. There was also one case of a merchandising company being upset about the some items in my gallery, but as it is that I'm always trying to cross-promote whenever possible, I offered to exchange links--never did hear back from them.

First concert attended
The Turtles in Chicago, 1968; second concert was - Black Sabbath--Paranoid tour--with Wishbone Ash as the opening act at Auditorium Theater in Chicago, 1970.

First concert worked
Superbowl of Rock series at Soldier Field in Chicago, I think 1977. I sold Coke--Cola!--for "40 cents a cup--two for a dollar" to kids in the stands with The Time Tunnel playing inside their eyeballs. It was so much fun to take advantage of really high rich kids

First industry job
I worked for a large record distributor in Chicago called Sound Video Unlimited. They were handling the racks in a number of large retailers in the U.S. and also were the first large scale home video distributor. I helped them get into the home computer/video game hardware and software business.

Career disappointment
Nothing was ever that disappointing. Frustrating, yes, as I just happened to be a participant in the upswing of a number of new media businesses - home video, home computers and video games, CD-ROM hardware and software, AOL/Compuserve, the Web--before broadband)--cable modem deployments, content for broadband networks and the convergence of TV with the Web and Mobile Web. It was always tough to move folks who had established their careers in the old media of the time to see the opportunities in new media.

Greatest challenge
The biggest uphill battle I was part of was trying to establish MMUSA/Fuse TV in the U.S. against the 8,000 lb. gorilla that was MTV, and their related broadcast/digital networks, especially when the production and operational budgets for our network was probably 10% of their smallest network. Even so, we knew that we didn't have much to work with other than great people and support of our fans--and the indie side of the music business--so we knew that we would have to do things much smarter and deliver programming and promotions that were that much more outrageous to get ourselves noticed. Growing the network from less than 10 million subs to over 40 million when I left--and having a good reputation with bands, most fans and advertisers--still left us half the size of MTV in terms of viewership, but doing that in less than five years was pretty rapid growth at the time.

Best business decision
To always work with people who share a common vision and stick with people who do a great job for you, if not always, then most of the time.

Best advice you received
"Buy low, sell high" and "Do what you're most passionate about, and it'll all work out" -- my wife Fran, my grandfather, and Nora Ryan, MMUSA's first general manager. Most memorable industry experiences
1) Standing next to Ahmet Ertegun at a Grammy party, maybe 2003, when it was in New York, and not immediately recognizing him. People came at us from every direction and brushed right by me to talk to him and heap praises on him, and he just stood there and said thank" to these folks, most of whom I'm sure he did not know, but they sure wanted to know him.

2) Sitting at a table at a restaurant in L.A. with Casey Cole, Nat King Cole's daughter at an event. Although she was not directly in the music industry--she worked in PR at the time--everyone came over to say hello to her and to ask her to give her family their best wishes. She was like royalty to them. I remember that Dionne Warwick came over and, after apologizing because her hair was a mess, gave her regards/best wishes as did Chaka Khan. I was sitting next to Jon Anderson from Yes, and he seemed to be taking all of the positive vibrations in from all the good wishes floating over our table. Perhaps this experience was eventually expressed in the words of a Yes song, but does anyone really know the words to a Yes song?

3) The Fuse folks brought in Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler for an interview in July 2005--I left in August. I didn't know that this was happening, but one day--actually, on my birthday--I received a call at my desk. "Mike, you have to come down to the Green Room, we need your advice." I took the elevator down and zipped into the studio, opened the door and - there they were. I was speechless. They knew that I was a huge Sabbath fan, and folks like that usually didn't visit little old Fuse, so it was a total surprise. I'd no idea what to say, so like an idiot, the first thing I said was "How many people at TV stations you visit know that you played with Jethro Tull for a while?" Tony was surprised and answered, honestly, "Not many." The two of them were so very nice to me. I ran upstairs and brought down my "Iommi/Fused" CD and the two copies of "Paranoid" that I had in my office--I told you I was a fan--and they signed them for me, Geezer signing "Best Witches, Geezer Butler". A very happy day.

Industry pet peeve
You've got to be joking, but here goes: people my age - Boomers - buy 70% of all pre-recorded music in CD format are loyal fans, spend big $$ on concert tix, buy back catalog, memorabilia, etc., but the music industry still focuses 90% of its efforts on 12 to 24-year-olds. I know, they're trying to build a relationship with a new customer, but what about us folks who've been customers for 40 years? Isn't that showing enough of a commitment? AARP should do a deal with iTunes and Eagle Rock Entertainment and take over the mainstream music business.

If I wasn't doing this, I would be..
..a special exhibits curator at a small-but-trend-setting art museum somewhere or an usher at The Beacon Theater. It's a nice theater that gets great acts, but I could be an usher at any similar theater.

Industry mentors
Throughout my career, timing has been the most important thing, followed by commitment and support from my employers, partners and people I worked with. When I started at Cablevision, certain people near the top of senior management had little faith that the company would be able to make $$ delivering entertainment in many forms - not just TV, but broadband Web and Video On Demand - and so those of us who worked on the first of these efforts met with a lot of resistance.

However, at the time, three people - Marc Lustgarten, who was vice chairman of Cablevision; Wilt Hildenbrand, executive vice president of Engineering; and Josh Sapan, CEO of Rainbow Programming the holding company for the CVC TV networks, all believed that, through some coordinated effort and a fair amount of experimentation, we'd build these businesses into something our customers and shareholders would appreciate. Getting operational, technical and content folks all on the same page at the same time couldn't have happened without people putting their egos aside and agreeing on the end goal. So although it seemed that sometimes it would never happen, I learned that it could be done if everyone is passionate about the goal.
