Five page Wired article here
There's also audio conversations.
Fav quotes:
Quote:
"At this end of the spectrum, the artist stands to receive the largest percentage of income from sales per unit — sales of anything. A larger percentage of fewer sales, most likely, but not always. Artists doing it for themselves can actually make more money than the massive pop star, even though the sales numbers may seem minuscule by comparison. Of course, not everyone is as smart as those nerdy Radiohead boys. Pete Doherty probably should not be handed the steering wheel."

Quote:
David Byrne is currently collaborating with Fatboy Slim and Brian Eno. Separately.


Here's a few of the charts used in the article:
