Image courtesy of pennerAnyone who has been paying attention to the flamboyant rockstar in the past few years will remember that he has ferociously rejected using the internet as a medium to sell or even listen to his music. In an interview in 2010 Prince told the Mirror internet completely over. I don see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can get it. have mocked his attitude and frustration has spilled over to social media such as Youtube where the vast majority of music is unavaiable or blocked. On one Youtube video of there is a disclaimer announcing SONG BLOCKED BY PRINCE BECAUSE HE DOESN WANT HIS MUSIC ON THE INTERNET. addition Prince refuses to release new music on iTunes and hasn had an official website since 2006. So no website, no Youtube and no iTunes? And yet he has louis vuitton shoes brown managed to sell out shows at the same venues almost as fast as internet revolutionaries Radiohead. Does this mean the internet really isn that important for musicians or the media louis vuitton bracelet 2013 in general? Of course not. There is a reason why I am seeing Radiohead this year and not Prince. Because I familiar with their music. Prince and Radiohead were both popular even before I was born. I discovered Radiohead through the internet and remember fondly being able to pay $3.50 for In Rainbows during their what you feel like phase. When I heard of this Prince fellow, I tried to search for his music, but all to be found was blocked content. People who are going to his shows will mainly be those who grew up with his music, not those who have discovered it on their own. The longer he refuses to embrace this dominant force in new media, the further he pushes away possible new fans. If anything, Prince is living in the past and is at risk of losing his rightful legacy with this naive view. august, brisbane, funk, internet, Melbourne, prince, purple rain, rock, sold out, sydney Posted under: Blogging, Future of media, Social media Dated: May 10 2012 I really like this blog post. I worried in the beginning you were going to make it about whether you liked Prince or not louis vuitton alma for sale but you make it a relevant discussion about freedom of information and marketing on the internet. Try to embed your links a little more in the flow of your post. For example I read an article by Age journalist Bernard Zuel entitled "Why Prince still matters". And to make your second link clear you should really use as anchor words Prince told The Mirror. Overally, though a very good post. I tend to agree with you Alex. Prince is one of those artists I never really got into. In fact, I hardly know Prince apart from seeing Purple Rain on TV and hearing a few other tunes on the radio. Most of my favourite groups were at the peak of their success before or around the time I was born. If it wasn for the internet, I would probably never have heard of them. Generally speaking, gone are the days of trawling through record shops looking for new music. Of all the CDs I bought, only a handful I bought without having heard the band before. If I curious about a band, I use the internet. I suspect most people our age do too. Like you say, Prince legacy is likely to louis vuitton purses uk fade if he doesn embrace the internet. Which is a shame, because I sure he probably great. I get where you coming from, and in this day and age it would be quite difficult to get anywhere in the music industry without putting your tracks on the net.
But Prince has already got such a mass of followers and money. A friend of mine(born after Prince hit his peak) who is attending both Melbourne gigs this month, has said the fact that Prince prefers to tour and play his music has a massive influence on his love for the guy. I respect the bold decision he made, although it does seem quite archaic to block his songs on the web (or even banning fans from taking photos at his concerts).
