Now now, to be fair, Lars Ulrich's only real complaint was about trading files of music that was not yet complete, thus undermining the artists' rights. Unfortunately, his big stupid mouth got him into trouble because he couldn't express himself without being a massive jerk, and labelled him the Napster-killer.Originally Posted by Turbowars
I don't buy music anymore, I don't download music anymore, I don't even listen to the CDs I already own. The labels have ruined music for me, I don't see them willing to take a pay cut in order to "save their troubled business". Fire the suits and drop the prices of CDs to $10 and under and the industry will thrive, until then it will continue to wither as it removes all artistic merit from the industry as it chokes the life out of real bands and creates more pop BS.
