Thom Yorke predicts end of mainstream music
06/09/2010 3 Comments
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has said in a rare interview that young musicians shouldn’t latch onto the mainstream music industry, saying it will fold onto itself in a matter of months. He says band should release music themselves and not look to get a major record deal. Radiohead set an example of this with the release on 2007′s In Rainbows album, which had a “pay-what-you-want” method of purchase. Since then, thousands of bands and even movies have done this. What do you think of Thom’s prediction? Is it really a matter of months before teenagers will have to work a little bit harder to get the latest Lil’ Wayne track?
