Amazon! No Bob Seger?

Come on Amazon!  No Bob Seger ready for downloading?  I realize I’m over the hill but I don’t want to buy another CD.   There’s no reason it shouldn’t be there.

Maybe Bob Seger isn’t ready to be rediscovered by a new generation, or he doesn’t want the money, or they are still fighting over some rights…

Here’s and idea.  While you are fighting about who gets what, let all the money go into a trust or Amazon gift certificates.  Then maybe when you are done you’ll wonder why you were fighting while you’re walking to the bank.

Well, now I got to go find some old friends that might have some Bob Seger CD’s so I can rip them…

Don’t worry I’ll wait a little longer it’s bound to show up sometime.

Now why can’t the music industry can’t figure why people pirate?

    The Internet has made the music distribution business go the way of the buggy whip – they just don’t know it yet. Artists are figuring out that it’s a good thing to get their material out there – even if it’s a free. Then they can make their money on concerts.

    Artists should just put up a web page to allow anyone to download their stuff and then put an Amazon “Click-to-Donate” button on it. The good artists would probably make more money from voluntary donations from avid fans than they do from their record contracts.

    Wow! Update on my previous comment. It looks like Radiohead is doing exactly that. They’re making their new album available for free download and asking people to pay what they want. Is this just the beginning?
