Why is there so much free music on this site? What is he, crazy?
Yes…as a fox maybe! Things have really changed in the music industry over the last few years. I think the internet is going to be really big one day, and when that happens, millions of people will be able to connect and share information “online.” This busts open the old music business model and makes way for something that we’ve never seen before, something that’s still taking shape. I give away music because I want to make music, and I can’t make music unless I make money, and I won’t make any money unless I get heard, and I won’t get heard unless I give away music. This is all part of the experiment. I believe it can work, but we all need to adjust our thinking about the relationship between artists and fans – the RIAA thinks that music listeners are criminals and that music should be locked up and protected. I disagree. I think there are times when free music and file sharing can greatly benefit an artist. Believe me, I spent many years making music and not sharing it with anyone, and that didn’t get me anywhere.
