First:

Second: He's done as much to kill music as Steve Jobs.

Third: I agree with him on everything except blaming Steve Jobs. If it wasn't Steve, it would be someone else.

Fourth: How many other musicians have made this exact statement? Yawn.

Sounds like his career is shot through the heart, and Steve Jobs is to blame.

Music has not died. It has evolved into something that, while very different, is still very similar. It has unfortunately led to the near-extinction of the record store, but time marches on, and so does music.

Plus, as others have said, I think he's just mad that no sane person enjoys his music any more. :p

I don't understand the point in this "attack". Like others have said, it's not solely Jobs' fault, and if he hadn't played his part, someone else would have! So singling him out in such a manner seems very childish and pointless.

I heard about this. I agree that iTunes has had some negative affects on music but I thought his reasoning was kind of moronic. What does it matter how someone listens to music? Does that make it any less enjoyable? I get what he's saying because a lot of people just buy individual songs rather than taking in the whole album but I don't think that's killing music. And like everyone else has already said, he's done just as much harm to music as Jobs.

The digital age of music has a ton of positives and negatives about it, but of course an old fart like Bon Jovi is just going to focus on the negative.
