Re: David Byrne: 'The internet will suck all creative content out of the world'
The genie is out of the bottle.
Ironic that a lot of older artists had the same criticisms about MTV and music videos back in the day. The Talking Heads hit their commercial peak in the golden age of MTV.
I like Bryne's music, and I am glad that he had the support network around him to help deliver his art to the masses. Today, that network is not as necessary, and I like having all the choices available to me as opposed to listening to what the record companies choose for me to listen to.
One constant in this discussion is that professional musicians have always made their money on the road.
