This always seems to happen with older, established acts. ‘Why pay some company to do what we can do ourselves?’ Because you’re in freaking RADIOHEAD and you can do that. It doesn’t work as smoothly for new bands or for older acts who haven’t been able to sustain their careers as well. If you see a cool new band you’ve never heard of Spotify is great for them. Because you’re probably not going to sign up for and figure out this new band’s personal streaming software just to hear songs you aren’t sure you like that much yet. Or if I want to hear Skee-Lo’s “I Wish” should I seek out his own service (which he would have to create) and use it just to hear that one song? Not to mention you’re limited to that one artist’s catalogue when you make playlists or want to hear other acts.
I don’t agree with him.

I hate to be the one to mention this, but “Color Me Badd” by Color Me Badd.” *sigh*
