Wilco's Jeff Tweedy on Filesharing

jeff tweedy wilco Here's Wilco's Jeff Tweedy on filesharing in an interview by the Associated Press.

AP: You've said that you don't see music file sharing as a threat, mainly because of quality issues?



Tweedy: That's just part of it. I don't think that the quality is the same. But I don't see it as a threat because I don't feel that it's a threat to have people more interested in music. I think what's happening with file sharing is that you have a lot more people hearing a lot more music, and I think more than anything else it has engendered an enthusiasm for music. It's a no-brainer that it should be embraced, that's kind the whole point of making music, to be heard.

Here's a guy who "gets it". Now if only Jeff could become CEO of Sony we'd all be living green grass and high tides forever.

Go Jeff! These voices need to be heard, it really bugs me when the record companies claim they are protecting the artists.
