I saw in a newspaper earlier this week that Jon Bon Jovi blamed Steve Jobs for killing the music industry. Here is the quote from the rock star from the article in the Huffington Post:
Today’s teens are missing out on a lot. There’s nothing like the good old days, listening to a blasting with all your friends, singing songs at the top of your lungs, and adults clicking their tongues thinking that the music was just noise. Good times.
Maybe Jon has a point. The music industry is not what it used to be. Is the love that teens had for music 30 years ago gone? Have we allowed ourselves to be manipulated by technology so much that the pure joy of listening to ten songs from your favorite group at once is gone forever?
Forever? Maybe not. One day music and album sales might return along with the transistor radio. Don’t know what a transistor radio is? Very sad.
Well, maybe you can find a used one somewhere, along with used vinyl records. They're out there somewhere. Check your Goodwill.
