Pigs at the trough: Major label’s digital sales slow
Warner Music Group last week admitted that digital music sales are slowing after the major labels won a hard-fought battle with Apple and other online music retailers to raise prices. In the same week, Warner CEO Edgar Bronfman Jr. told BBC he isn’t going to allow his label artists’ music to be streamed for free anymore.
Just as the music industry was beginning to show some life with digital music sales increasing, the pigs at the trough decide it’s not enough. Bronfman is the same guy who took on YouTube, Rock Band and Guitar Hero, saying that he — er, Warner — wasn’t getting enough money.
Ozzy and the boys were Warner artists back in the day. Here’s War Pigs, which I dedicate to Mr. Bronfman and the other pigs at the trough.
