Counting Crows lead singer: File sharing is a new, "better" radio station

From Issue:

Counting Crows' Adam DuritzStop us if you've heard this one before: "If you got 150 million people on BitTorrent, then that’s the new radio station... That’s a better radio station in fact, because people have the choice to play it as much as they want and stop when they get sick of it."

So said Adam Duritz, lead singer of Counting Crows. The band has released a selection of four songs for free in partnership with BitTorrent, "asking listeners to buy the full album if they want to hear more."

"It’s a no brainer to me... I can’t believe everybody’s not doing it," Duritz said, reportedly add that "it’s much better than bribing radio stations or record stores," according to TorrentFreak (here).

Duritz certainly isn't the first prominent musician to take this sort of stance. In early February, legendary singer/songwriter Neil Young said at the Dive Into Media conference, "I look at the Internet as the new radio. I look at the radio as gone... Piracy is the new radio. That’s how music gets around... That's the radio" (RAIN coverage here).

"Comparing piracy to radio is a smart way of looking at the issue," commented GigaOM then. "In the early days of the music business, when live performances and record sales were the main revenue generator for artists and publishers, radio itself was seen as a form of piracy (as sheet music was before that)."
