“Really the most important people in music now are the CEO of Apple, the CEO of Google, the CEO of Spotify…none of them are from a music background…People [who] do not genuinely love [and understand, appreciate] music…are making decisions about what everyone is going to hear, based on profit maximization.” — 25:30 in  — This may explain the ‘fake artists’ situation and also the ever declining royalty situation…people don’t love music the way they used to [because we are all being abused by the profit motive driving music].

“There is great [new] music out there, but it is never coming from [any] major label; it’s always self-produced.” — 32:00 in
