Do you dream and your band to become as big as Kiss? It can be short. In any case, if one is to believe the band’s guitarist Gene Simmons.
Before a gig last week he shared his thoughts about the record label industry, pirated downloads and fans.
He says that it is the fans who puts a spoke in the wheels of the new bands, by requiring that take part of the music without paying for it.
– It kills the next Elvis and the Beatles and the next drawing and the next … whoever it may be, just because you have to give away the music for free, he said.
In this way, the new capabilities not even a chance of success, he believes. He believes that there are bands and artists with enough talent, but who will never get the chance to succeed.
– The fans have killed it. They have killed infrastructure.
