Hugh Cornwell Defends Music Downloading

In a recent BBC News interview, former Stranglers frontman Hugh Cornwell endorsed free music downloading, coming just as the British government plans to crack down on illegal downloaders.

Hugh, currently touring the United States, argues that a new generation is exposed to his music through the Internet and they, in turn, spend more money on his live performances and albums.

"There's a whole generation of people who have never heard of me or the band I used to be in, The Stranglers. The question is, how do I reach them?" Huh asks in the video. "As far as I'm concerned, the free downloading of music is something we should embrace and not fearů People introduced to my music free online are more likely to buy my records and come to my live shows."

Hugh is pioneering free downloads as his latest album, Hooverdam, is available for free download at his website, Hughcornwell.com which is available for viewing in twelve languages.

Hugh Cornwell is continues to tour the U.S. in support of Hooverdam. The tour kicked off March 24 in Tuscon, Arizona and continues throughout the country until wrapping up April 10 in Chicago.
