Artists such as prince and elton john , who have already made a fortune , give their cd away with the sunday newspaper which is advertised as " FREE this sunday…………". This sends out a message to the general non-music-making public , that music is free.

I've been making music for many years now , and spent my teens and my adult life dreaming of a career in music , doing what i love AND getting paid for it. I spent many years learning what is now a very exact science , using state of the art technology.
It started out as a novelty that a band / artist , would give their track away free online , to give it something to get noticed by. Pretty soon , everyone was giving away their music free. Now , artists are giving away entire ALBUMS free.

I was on twitter when the digital economy bill was announced and i saw non-music-making people were actually incensed and said it was their RIGHT to have all the music they could get , for free.

This culture has to stop !!!

An electrician , plumber , gardener , hairdresser , binman , shop worker etc……..wouldn't work for free , so why should a musician be treated any differently ??
Imagine a world without music , and then they'd see how vital a thing music is.
