By TOM D'ANTONI // We don't talk business, we talk music. Whew, what a relief!
We’re not at our usual stand, World Cup Coffee and Tea for this OMN Coffeeshop Conversation. Because he’s so busy, we came to the temple of records to meet the Grand Vizier of music in Portland, Music Millennium’s owner Terry Currier.
If there’s a more central figure in the music industry around here, I’ve never met him.
Most of the time, when he’s interviewed, everybody always asks him how the store is doing and will the record store business survive.
I don’t want to do that. If you’ve ever sat with Terry, the most fun is to talk about music. Thing is, his taste is so broad, he can be talking about the Kinks one minute and thrash metal the next.
Let’s talk to the person who has done more for music and musicians in Oregon than anybody else.
