Warner Music's Sale Ends an Era

Music critic Tom Moon says the sale of Warner Music Group brings a definite end to the "artist-first" philosophy that once nurtured talented music acts. In contrast to the fast-moving music trends of today, Warner and like-minded companies were known for allowing musicians to develop, sometimes over several years, rather than demanding a string of hit songs.
