Megadeth's Mustaine Says Giving Music Away Is Stupid

(Rock News Desk) Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine says bands who choose to give away their music for free are stupid, and predict the music industry will resolve its current problems. And although he's happy with his career at the moment, he admits he'd like Megadeth to be bigger than they are.

"I think the record business is just like anything else it's going to regulate itself. It's going to correct itself," Mustaine tells the Brandon Sun. "The problem is that all the pigs were in there with their hands on the steering wheel. They got what they deserved."

He believes bands who allow free downloading of their tracks won't be around long enough to be part of the industry once it's repaired. "Musicians who say they don't care, that's they'd give it away for free, are stupid," he says. "They've never been hungry. If you're going out there and being careless, and just letting your songs be downloaded for free, it's probably going to reflect in your longevity." more on this story
