Paul Weller Blasts Record Store Day
Weller said: "I agree with all of you who have sent messages expressing your anger and disappointment at the exploitation of these 'limited editions' by touts.
"Apart from making the record, the rest has very little to do with me - but I am disheartened by the whole thing and unfortunately I won't be taking part in Record Store Day again," he said. "It's such a shame. I am a big supporter of independent stores, but the greedy touts making a fast buck off genuine fans is disgusting."
He was furious to discover copies of his single on sale even before this year's Record Store Day, which took place on Saturday - and added that some fans had been told it was sold out as soon as stores opened. Weller said: "it only takes a few to spoil a wonderful concept for everyone else. Shame on those touts."
