Also, why does music have to be about business anyways? It’s about art. Get your mind out of the business thinking, and that might help for something that’s creative and original – something I’ve never heard from Kid Rock myself.

It’s the same old pop garbage that has to do more with how you look and how famous you are rather than if you can sing, play an instrument or god forbid WRITE YOUR OWN MUSIC! That’s what the music industry feeds on. Most of the time people would buy an album for one song they heard off the radio and get stuck with a bunch of filler junk anyways. If people want singles, whats wrong with that? Put out a good album and people will buy it. The music industry is killing itself – no need to blame it on anything. If they want to change that, get some original artists for god sakes that can actually make a good album.

I still buy all of my albums on CD. I never even bought an I-Pod yet. I like the CD format.

If they found great artists who made great music that was developed over time, they’d be way more successful. It’s been their choosing to put out singles and cram a bunch of filler on the rest of the album.

I buy albums on I-Tunes all the time – “classic” albums, not the crap they pawn off as albums – Kid Rock??? Gimme a break – he’s the biggest joke, maybe if he could sing slightly in key, he’d sell more records. It’s time to take a look in the mirror record companies, you’re not doing your jobs and I’m happy to see you fall from grace – good riddance!

My suggestion to them is embrace the new technology- stop resisting and whining.
