(Rock News Desk) Henry Rollins says music pirates aren't the only ones to blame for the music industry's current problems and cites his former band Black Flag as a prime example.

He states he and his ex colleagues haven't been paid royalties in decades for profits made from their back catalogue. And although he insists illegal downloading is wrong, he maintains there are advantages to people hearing music they wouldn't otherwise listen to.

Rollins says in his LA Weekly column: "Musicians have been kept from their earnings by everyone from venue owners to managers, agents, other band members and record labels, to the point where it's an almost built-in expectation." He has a lot more to say
