Max Comments on Barry Weiss, CEO of Jive Records
« on: July 23, 2007, 01:51:46 PM »
"There’s very little ego,” said Max Martin, a Swedish producer behind hits for Ms. Spears and others. “When you meet a lot of other presidents,” he said, declining to specify anyone, “you see lots of big offices, you see a lot of ‘I’m the president of the record company.’ That’s the one thing I that I love about Barry and Jive in general, there’s very little of that thing. It’s a very tight group of people.”

Hey thanks Matt, I just saw this too.
It's not often we see a quote from Max Martin to the media.

I wonder if it means that Max is in New York?

I wish the New York Times would interview Max or any of our favourites.
