Subject: Record Store Owner says "Anybody who legally downloads music is an idiot!"

Written By: ChuckyG on 06/10/08 at 10:15 pm

Asked if downloads are killing his business, John got a little worked up, "Anybody who legally downloads music is an idiot! You can get it for free, why pay for it? Download it illegally, who's going to catch you? Legal or illegal, they sound the same."

Ah, but the CD or LP, that's way better, so if you're going to pay, you might as well buy the physical version. Maybe get some nice cover art or booklet. Makes sense to me. John quipped, "If I was a kid I'd be downloading music, but if you ask me I think the music business blew it by charging too much for CDs."

I couldn't agree more!
