Local Music Notebook: Lupe's Leadership & Lydia Loveless Loves Liver

1. Fellow Fiasco.

"Two Chicagoans have been named to the 2014 class of the Henry Crown Fellowship program," Shia Kapos reports for Crain's.

"Andrew Hayek, president and CEO of Surgical Care Affiliates in Glencoe and Wasalu Muhammad Jaco, aka hip-hop artist Lupe Fiasco, president and CEO of 1st & 15th Entertainment Group, are among the 21 fellows."

Lupe Fiasco, however, was not chosen for his music career.

"Mr. Fiasco recently helped launch Chicago-based Higi LLC, a consumer health care data site that includes social media and gaming. Mr. Fiasco was named to Crain's '40 under 40' list of achievers last year."


Side note: I think "Mr. Fiasco" is his father.


Lupe's advice on leadership: Don't be an asshole.


2. Kids Interview Bands: Lydia Loveless

This took place last month at Big Fun (seem familiar?) in Columbus, Ohio.


3. Bizarro Bloodshot.

Trademark infringement or little likelihood of confusion?


Comments welcome.
