Van Morrison being grumpy about something new-fangled? Surely not! But yes, it’s true: Van isn’t a fan of download culture judging by an interview with Time magazine, in which he says he is “not a download artist”, since his fans prefer CD or vinyl. What’s more, Morrison suggests that the licensing agreement for his back catalogue with iTunes is about to expire, and he has no intention of renewing it. What his label EMI makes of this declaration remains to be seen.
