Default Re: David Byrne: 'The internet will suck all creative content out of the world'

I keep reading articles from various artists saying "I had x-number of listens on spotify, but all I got was x-cents".

And I so sympathize. I don't think the general public has any clue how expensive it is to make music. I've lost tons of money on recordings myself.

But on the other hand, I also think, but under the old system, where you only heard new music if it was on the radio or someone gave you a mix tape, how many of these artists would even be known? Most would just be complete unknowns with no outlet for their music.
