Seriously, still not understanding the sheer amount of dislike being aimed at Bon Jovi here...

He is what he is, I don't hate him. It's just fun to turn his "Steve Jobs killed music" comment around on him.

Well, I don't think he deserves everything that's been said about him here :P He's got a right to be pissed with iTunes as much as any artist does. I remember seeing a table showing how much each artist gets out of every iTunes sale, and it was a tiny percentage. He may not need the money, but many other artists do, and he's also right about the albums thing, at the same time.

Secondly, I don't see how he's had anything to do with "killing" music. Bon Jovi have a load of decent tunes, yeah they have some (a few :P) crap ones as well, but show me a popular band that doesn't. I can't think of a single thing he's done that would come close to even harming music.

Enough reasoning? :P Given that noone has thus far given a reason why, I personally feel that's enough to show why not.

There's a perfectly good reason to attack Jovi, and I hinted at it earlier. Instead of writing a carefully thought-out article on his opinion of the "album experience" in the digital age, (which would have said, in a nutshell, "The album experience has vanished and, in my opinion, this is bad for music") he acted like a 2-year-old throwing a temper tantrum at a business figurehead.

I get albums based on the artwork all the time. That's how I found out about Balmorhea, Arms & Sleepers, Flica, and Emphemetry. All artists I now love.

Here we have it, CandyCorn as empirical proof that Bon Jovi is a bumbling idiot.

Exactly. Mods can close this topic now. I'm evidence. PM me with any further questions.

My question was a yes or no one really.
He deserves every bit of it honestly.
He is a piece of **** who has never made one good song in his career. He was apart of that ****ty hair metal scene and luckily that was killed off.
Bands make money on tours and merch sales not album sales. He is just a dinosaur. Just like the industry that is being destoryed which is a great thing. Just because the industry is having a hard time does not mean there will not be music.
