Slayer's Paul Bostaph Would Like To See Changes In Music

(Classic Rock) Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph says he's happy to work in a music industry where bands make most of their money on the road. But he still doesn't believe they should be forced to give up their recorded work for free.

Slayer are gearing up for the launch of their 11th album, which is complete except for the artwork. He's not allowed to reveal its title yet - but when it does arrive, it could become one of the most-pirated records of the year.

Bostaph tells Pop Culture Madness: "People being able to appropriate music for free, that's not right. I don't think people should go into poverty to buy something, but I don't believe we, as artists, should invest so much in what we do then give it away.

"I'd like to see change. How that changes, so the fans can get what they want and we can support ourselves? I don't know." Read more here.
