I have a coworker/musician whom is convinced that internet piracy is going to spell the end of music. period.
Sorry Alan, but the Internet will do no such thing. Music will always exist as it did ten thousand years ago, however; the puss filled boils on the backside of society (musicians who play for the money) will finally fall from their pedestals, back to the place they belong: the court jester. and music will finally be able to flourish as it should.
