Music Artists Discover Second Life

MySpace.com started as a place for established and aspiring artists to make themselves heard through Social Networking. Now that there are literally thousands of acts crowding the pages of Myspace.com, a number of well known veterans like Duran Duran and Suzanne Vega are establishing outposts in Second Life.
Artists are creating avatars and using the game’s audio-streaming features to play “live” concerts on stages made of polygons. Whether this approach (and Second Life itself for that matter) catches on or just remains a novelty is yet to be seen, but with nearly 400,000 members, Second Life is considered by some record companies to be a good venue to reach fans.
Wired has a fairly detailed article on this evolution here: Second Life Rocks (Literally)
