Ted Leo on the Economy and Music

"If you're not getting tour support from a label, it's really tough," says Leo. "We've managed to make a go at it as full-time musicians for a few years now, largely due to the sheer amount that we're on the road. I'm pretty sure we're not going to be able to do that for the next year. People get jobs, people lose jobs, people find other jobs. I guess it's time to find another job." -Spin Magazine, January 2009
