Why do some musicians deny iTunes?
I find it very interesting how people love to try and fight the inevitable, only to be humble by the loss of that fight. - Damian deLeon.
For the longest time certain musicians have blatantly blamed apple for their overall loss of sales, simple because iTunes gives people the freedom to purchase single songs and not the whole album. Yes, Bon Jovi did said that on the evening news just last year. He told MSN that he personally blames Steve Jobs for killing the experience of buying a whole album not knowing what kind of songs were in the album.
Kid Rock is another musician that decided to rebel against iTunes, however he did so by not selling any of his music on iTunes.
Same goes for other artist like AC/DC and even Garth Brooks, if he's still recording.
So What's my point? My point is that just two weeks ago AC/DC decided to allow ALL of their 16 studio albums, to not only be available in iTunes, but also allowed Apple to remaster the songs exclusively for iTunes. Win, Win for everybody.
On that same token, Kid Rock made the announcement that his latest album "Rebel Soul" will be, and is now available on iTunes right now.
The point of the story? I don't know if there is one. I personally would like to know what goes through these people's mind when they think they won't sell their art on the biggest music retailer in the world.
I guess the point is, don't fight a loosing battle and just adapt to the times. Change is inevitable, and this one is for the best.
