Jeff Tweedy on File Sharing
Tweedy: Do you remember home taping as killing music? It's the same thing. The sky is falling. Ultimately, I think it's an excuse for incompetence.
(via LHB)On a completely unrelated issue, does anyone have an extra ticket to the Stars show at La Tulipe? I waited too long and now they're sold out...
On the other hand, I'm reading Jonathan Frayer's bio of Beethoven, and the old deaf guy had constant problems with rogue printers pirating his sheet music. Imagine, Beethoven beset by the file-sharing of 200 years ago!
I note that the music business has only grown since then.
