An email newsletter I subscribe to about the music business notes, “The way a musician looks on stage is more important to listeners than the music being played, according to a study just released. That is, even though most music fans swear that they are evaluating the music based on the music itself, and little else.” The news cites a study from Dr. Chia-Jung Tsay, a professor at the University College, London, that is part of the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The piece can be downloaded free from the Academy website at this URL: http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2013/08/16/1221454110.full.pdf+html?sid=e6485f76-186a-42d1-9c95-af1c3e2f32f0
