Bit of a stupid comment tbh.

Most kids illegally download rather than buy from itunes anyway.

My friends actually don't have the mental capability to illegally download music. I have to teach them how to torrent every other week.

they just listen to music on youtube, which I've been trying to tell them that the sound quality is bad but they can't tell the difference and that makes me sad.

I agree with him, as I feel that way about the whole download era. But as many have said Mr. Bon Jovi has done much more harm. Wonder what he thinks about Steven Tyler on American Idiots?

I don't know why everyone on this board is negative towards Jon Bon Jovi. However, in regards to Steve Jobs, it's not fair to blame him him entirely for the 'New Age' music format. I miss the record stores, too, but it's not only iTunes fault. Since the start of the internet, record sales in the local retails has dwindled conciderably, the cost of a CD compared to a mp3 dowload is ridiculous, and the ease of downloading is immediate. In all respectiveness, it's the persons who purchase downloads that is killing the music industry. Music has evolved from generation to generation, from one format to another, now it's the era for downloads. Although, I may not agree with the format, it has its benefits. For one, it's much convient to carry a mp3 player as opposed to haul a CD player and CDs or a walkman and cassette tapes. Secondly, someone can store his or hers entire music collection on one mp3 player. And thirdly, you can download albums that have otherwise has been out-of-print for quite some time. Society has to learn to adapt to this technology. So, Jon Bon Jovi has to accept the fact that this is the way the universe will purchase and listen to music. It's here until something else comes along.

nap-****ing-ster.
Jobs never causes anything, he just copies stuff that exists and does some brilliant marketing.

AOR is both a genre AND a radio format. Even RateYourMusic says so.

itunes is a lone savior on the internet of the music industry. It couldn't be more the opposite of what he said. Jovi is just bitter cause he is older and is reminiscent about younger, earlier, "better," times like we all are :P

I guess if you are trying to target the whole internet though, it would fit to choose someone like Jobs.

What drugs are you on? I would say pass me some but I'm not into drugs. I think you should admit yourself for rehab.

The internet boom of the late-90's created a media revolution. People realized that copying, uploading, and downloading files could be done quickly and at no cost to them. Who could resist? It was a freeing time for all of us. The idea that music could exist without taking up any real space, that you could have 5000 songs at your finger tips and nevr have to worry about losing or scratching another CD ever again was fascinating.

I can admit it, I helped kill the music industry. Whatever, the bulk of good commercial music has already been made, and people who truly want to make great music will do so whether they are rich or not. So I'm not worried, the music industry can stay dead...

LONG LIVE FILE SHARING!!!
