Celebrating Record Store Day’s 15th Anniversary

A Conversation with Linda Perry, Michael Kurtz, & Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo of Metallica led by Variety’s Chris Willman

With a Performance by Nilüfer Yanya

 

To celebrate the 15th annual Record Store Day and the release of the new book, Record Store Day – The Most Improbable Comeback of the 21st Century, the GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to host a special panel discussion about the history and importance of Record Store Day with Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo of Metallica, Linda Perry, and Record Store Day Co-Founder Michael Kurtz, led by Variety’s Chris Willman. The panel will be followed by a special intimate performance from Nilüfer Yanya.  

Metallica played a major role in the very first Record Store Day, and both the band and its members have been a part of the event ever since, including serving as Record Store Day Ambassadors in 2016. Kirk Hammett’s debut solo project, Portals, is set to be released on both CD and vinyl on Record Store Day 2022. Robert Trujillo has been a part of several RSD releases over the years, from partnering with RSD for the release of the documentary film Jaco, which he produced and well as 2016 RSD Exclusive soundtrack album and most recently the RSD Exclusive release of Infectious Grooves’ Take U On A Ride.

Nilufer Yanya’s second album, Painless, was released earlier this month on several formats, including a special vinyl edition exclusive to independent record stores. Linda Perry, the GRAMMY-nominated producer, songwriter and musician, manages Surfbort, whose record Keep On Truckin’ comes to vinyl as part of Record Store Day 2022. 

In 2007, record stores were told that they were over, relegated to a footnote in the history of modern music. Instead of reading their own obituary, a bunch of record store owners decided to throw a party with their friends, some of whom happened to be among the greatest musicians and bands around. In the past fifteen years, that party has grown, exponentially and worldwide, becoming the largest single-day music event in the world, and accidentally relaunching the vinyl format, a physical medium that, in 2021, saw its greatest sales in three decades, and challenges streaming services for supremacy with music fans.

How did that happen? Who were the people behind it? Why did they succeed beyond all odds?

Record Store Day – The Most Improbable Comeback of the 21st Century tells this story in the voices of the artists who love them, the people who founded Record Store Day, and the people who make up a record store. Written by Larry Jaffee, a New York-based journalist, editor, and teacher at Mercy College and the New York Institute of Technology, and Conference Director for the Making Vinyl series of conferences.

Hardbound and trade paperback editions are available at indie record stores, bookstores and other booksellers starting April 12, and a limited Think Indie x RSD + Vinyl edition, a hardback book packaged with an album of tracks recorded at record stores around the US (featuring Paul McCartney, Metallica, Pearl Jam, Billie Eilish, Brandi Carlile, Imagine Dragons, Jason Isbell + the 400 Unit, Justin Townes Earle, Regina Spektor, Frightened Rabbit, Mudhoney, and Jose Gonzalez) comes to record stores on April 23.
