Mike, I just assumed it was me. You know, getting older and liking what I grew up listening to. So much of todays music seems derivitave, but I quess it always has been to a degree. I mean Mozart listened to Bach, Mick Jagger listened to Howlin' Wolf. Maybe influences would be a better term? Just my take.

Has anybody else noticed that the quality of music declined greatly about the same time file sharing became popular? Maybe it was a coincidence, maybe not.

I don't buy or even listen to music released by RIAA companies as a rule. In their overzealous push to protect their dying distribution model they have shut down legitimate services and sued 12 year olds. They have permanently lost me as a customer. I think my name is on just about every petition seeking to block laws their lobby is trying to pass for the past 10 years. That system is worse than broken; it's useless at best and dangerous at worst.

Comment by Tony Carroll on March 21, 2012 at 10:24am

I think you're right Steph. It would be good for a discussion. And I still don't pirate. Even if I have to go to WAL-Mart, or Amazon, or Apple, they[the artists] are still getting something. Not enough in my opinion. The  system seems to be broken. Have any ideas?

Comment by Steph S. on March 21, 2012 at 10:19am
I don't pirate anything! Good topic. We could probably start a discussion on that.
