Henry Rollins has slammed the major labels for inadvertently encouraging the growth of illegal file-sharing, in an interview. “I think the major factor in the couldn’t-come-soon-enough decline of the major label industry is greed,” he says. “Greed and underestimating the intelligence of their patrons. File sharing has had an effect, certainly. Why do people share files? Maybe because you put out a CD for $19.99 and two songs on it are good and the rest is so-so because you told the band to hurry up already. When you make art into an industry, everyone will suffer. I am sorry about all the people who lost their jobs but this thing had to end.”
