Bon Jovi: "Steve Jobs Killed Music"
Jon Bon Jovi slams Steve Jobs for 'killing' music - MSN Music News


Jon Bon Jovi has taken aim at Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, accusing him of "killing" the music industry with iTunes.

The rocker is saddened that the "magical" experience of buying records in a store is disappearing, brick-and-mortars stores being eroded in part due to iTunes' success.

Bon Jovi tells The Sunday Times Magazine, "Kids today have missed the whole experience of putting the headphones on, turning it up to 10, holding the jacket, closing their eyes and getting lost in an album; and the beauty of taking your allowance money and making a decision based on the jacket, not knowing what the record sounded like, and looking at a couple of still pictures and imagining it."

"God, it was a magical, magical time," he continues, "I hate to sound like an old man now, but I am, and you mark my words, in a generation from now people are going to say: 'What happened?' Steve Jobs is personally responsible for killing the music business."
I didn't see this mentioned anywhere here so I figured I'd post it. Love how angry he is that he can't sell records anymore.

He's got a point but it's Bon Jovi so I couldn't really give a flying fuck.

What's with all the Bon Jovi hate? In many ways he's right - while I think that electronic media isn't a bad thing, I do have problems with the emphasis on tracks that iTunes seems to have, and I'll alllways go out and buy the physical cpoy of an album I really like. It just isn't the same otherwise.

He has a point of course, but there are so many other targets you could attach such an argument to so it really doesn't hold much weight.

Basically just an old man, wishing he could relive the good ole days. Bon Jovi blows.

Jon Bon Jovi has officially become an old man, film at eleven.

My mom actually listened to Bon Jovi a lot when I was a kid. I don't know how I survived.
