Roger Waters Slams 'Rogues And Thieves' That Ruined Music (A Top Story)


.
On Tuesday Roger Waters Slams 'Rogues And Thieves' That Ruined Music was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters says in a new interview that the advent of digital streaming services has ruined the business model for developing new artists.

Waters tells The Times (via Ultimate Classic Rock): "I feel enormously privileged to have been born in 1943 and not 1983. To have been around when there was a music business and the takeover by Silicon Valley hadn't happened, and in consequence, you could still make a living writing and recording songs and playing them to people.

"When this gallery of rogues and thieves had not yet injected themselves between the people who aspire to be creative and their potential audience and steal every f***ing cent anybody ever made and put it in their pockets to buy f***ing huge mega-yachts and Gulfstream Fives with. These thieves. It's just stealing. And that they're allowed to get away with it is just incredible."

He adds: 'I'm angry, even though it doesn't change my life in any way." Read more - here.
