Two great quotes from Wayne Shorter on how apparent obstacles posed by 'the music industry' can be a blessing in disguise:

"The corporations serve as a resistance to the creative process. But if you really kind of think of it, an airplane cannot take off without resistance. We have to find the jewel in what we call the enemy. That's called wisdom."

"I surely don’t blame record companies or other people for anything. As I said, I accept barriers as the resistance that I need to fly. It’s my duty to find out what other uses there are for things that seem immovable. Every obstacle is a potential enabler."
