Might wanna choose your words more carefully next time, Pete. People LOVE vampires! Ha!
All jokes aside, The Who rocker Pete Townshend is VERY serious about his disdain for iTunes, and he's saying that they profit from the music "without supporting the artists who create it."
He believes iTunes should provide the following services for its artists:
- Employing talent scouts
- Giving bands space to stream their music
- Paying smaller artists "directly rather than through a third part aggregator"
Pete adamantly believes that iTunes should "provide some aspect of these services to the artists whose work it bleeds like a digital vampire (to make money)."
Do U agree with Pete Townshend? Is iTunes a "digital vampire?"
