Pink Floyd Star Accuses U2 Of Devaluing Music

(Radio.com) In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Pink Floyd's Nick Mason opens up on the band, new release The Endless River and his thoughts - since just about everyone seems to have them - on U2's much talked about album Songs of Innocence.

While talking about Pink Floyd's new album with Rolling Stone, Mason said that the band has been slightly aided by U2 with their release of Songs of Innocence, which was automatically available to every iTunes customer for free.

"They did it the wrong way around and I'm fond of saying that what we did is a very old fashioned musical concept," Mason told Rolling Stone. "We're hoping people might actually buy this record."

He went on to explain how U2 giving away their album for free was a surprise to everyone. "It was so unexpected, I thought, and interesting that people took such umbrage at being given something. That does devalue things," he said. "Music has been horribly devalued by being given away. It's funny they didn't sense some of that. It's been the big story of the 21st century, music being devalued."
