Never thought I’d say this, but Dieter Bohlen speaks sense in this clip. Unfamiliar with Mr Bohlen? He used to be in a german “band” called Modern Talking in the 80s responsible for “music” like this:
He has since reappeared on German TV as the German version of Simon Cowell (no Wikipedia link needed here)
You might have never heard of Dieter Bohlen and don’t speak German, but basically what he says here is that all music should be free and kids should not be criminalised for sharing music and the only way for musicians to make money is gigging. Going live.
I have written something along those lines a while ago (if you don’t want to read the whole gumpf just read the last para here)
Dieter I salute you. There, I’ve said it.
