Rock and punk icon Iggy Pop gave a lecture the other night, and this is what he had to say about illegal downloading,

“We are exchanging the corporate rip-off for the public one. Aided by power nerds. Kind of computer Putins. They just wanna get rich and powerful. And now the biggest bands are charging insane ticket prices or giving away music before it can flop, in an effort to stay huge. And there’s something in this huge thing that kind of sucks.”

Yeah, it kind of does suck.
