I dont understand this. There are more people in the worlld today than ever....yet music sales in general, are a FRACTION of what they were 20-40 yrs ago.
I have to say tho....im thrilled about vinyl sales going up. I HOPE that will drive the price down, as some vinyl are a pure rip off. To put this into context, I bought Dry The Rivers debut album. The CD was going for 7 and the vinyl was 28....but luckily i picked it up for half price eventually.
I think vinyl buyers are being held to ransom....as they know we desire to own the physical item, whereas those who go for CD or digital versions can easily settle for a pirated download, costing NOTHING! So i think they are cashing in on vinyl buyers

The ease of music piracy is to blame.

At this point, a 10 year old can do it relatively without a problem.

Nice.  They just added a few North American tour dates, including Chicago.  I plan on going, as long as I can score a ticket.

Well, Kraftwerk were awarded their Lifetime Achievement Grammy last night, so now I have even less reason to watch.

I know NIN, Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl, and Lindsay Buckingham are all performing together

So thats something.

Motley Crue announce farewell tour:    You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

...they've all apparently signed some kind of binding agreement that none of them can go out as Motley Crue after the tour's completion, which is a new one on me.
