Having met the Mr Peterman, I can assure you he is like no one else. Those beats are all inside his head. I was really happy when I read that he managed to buy his name back after that unfortunate business some years back. I hope he has regained his life as well.
Personally speaking, I will continue to do my own thing. I do it because I like it and want to do it. If money follows that, okay, if not I don't really care.
