Neil Young, on Facebook:
I was there.
AM radio kicked streaming’s ass.
Analog Cassettes and 8 tracks also kicked streaming’s ass,
and absolutely rocked compared to streaming.
Streaming sucks. Streaming is the worst audio in history.
If you want it, you got it. It’s here to stay.
Copy my songs if you want to. That’s free.
All my music, my life’s work, is what I am preserving the way I want it to be.
It’s already started. My music is being removed from all streaming services. It’s not good enough to sell or rent.
Make streaming sound good and I will be back.
Or, as Apple Music so justly points out:
I don’t agree with people who say that vinyl sounds better than digital, but cassettes? 8-track tapes? AM RADIO? Seriously, this man is teetering on the brink.
