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:
