Hello Internet ,
So this whole thing about artists and streaming seems to continue , and it keeps getting sillier by the day , it was brought to my attention that the artist Neil Young has pulled his music from the streaming services . I do support his decision on this , it is his work after all but some things are ridiculous … he has said and I quote “Streaming has ended for me. I hope this is ok for my fans. It’s not because of the money, although my share (like all the other artists) was dramatically reduced by bad deals made without my consent. It’s about sound quality. ” source : https://www.facebook.com/NeilYoung …
“ It’s not because of the money, although my share (like all the other artists) was dramatically reduced by bad deals made without my consent. It’s about sound quality” …. this is funny because , if it’s not about the money why mention it ????
Also taking into account that a vast number of people these days listen to music on mobile devices or even any sort of digital device that plays mp3 compressed files … is this still an issue ? Or is this related to the fact that Mr Young has already developed his own “high quality” download service https://www.ponomusic.com and music store where they sell their own “ponoplayer” … (horrible looking thing if you ask me ) In any case, I do think that his attitude is “funny” and odd because of the way this is said but … he does have the right to do this and …. I respect him for not just complaining but actually doing something to fight something that apparently he disagrees with .
In any case … respect to Neil for his courage … and may I ask if Mr Young is also going to remove all the videos from youtube that feature his songs ?
