"I didn't report to anyone. They let me operate independently. It was an era when people who had established themselves were given the ball to run with it—and were supported until they succeeded."

Today, with almost everybody in media and his uncle sporting an MBA with a CYA mind set, this can only be a dream.

Interesting read, Marc.

After going through your Wall Street Journal interview, along with this JazzWax blog, I come to one major conclusion: Creed has a tremendous ego. Which is quite okay as long as the self-aggrandizement doesn’t outweigh the results.

In Creed's case the results seem to speak for themselves, don’t they?
