Wilco

Jeff Tweedy of Wilco discusses the wonderful world of musical interwebs with AV Club:

“I don’t think it really matters whether they clamp down harder or not, because that’s the way everything’s going. Unless we see serious changes in what the Internet is, it’s going to be that way. Internet is radio for a lot of people. It’s a place to get music and hear music, and no amount of clamping down will change that. And anybody who’d expend energy preventing people from hearing music seems not to understand the basic principal of making music in the first place. It’s so antithetical to being a musician.
I mean, I do have to be a businessman. Wilco has been a business for a long time, and it’s our livelihood. But I can’t see how it would ever benefit anybody for me to put that first.”
