Pete Townshend gives the inaugural John Peel Lecture and makes a very good point that gets reported around the world about how exploitative of musicians iTunes is. Meanwhile Apple has so much money stashed away it doesn’t seem to know what to do with it… Take a tip from Pete.

    Problem being, too many musicians just want to take and not give. In this digital age, their products should be cheap as we don’t need any hard plastic, just a download. Production, storage and distribution costs need not be much at all. If they choose to go into silly big studio’s that charge a fortune to hire, that’s their problem. Do it at home on a decent PC! It’s time to change and that means giving up on all old style business models which are sheer explotation.
