Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian had said disparaging remarks about the Spotify in the past interviews. However, this idea seems to have changed. He said, he loves Spotify and his oppinion Spotify is the best thing ever.
Scott Ian was interviewed by “Alternative Press”, conducted at this weekend’s Aftershock festival in Sacramento. Here is the his recently ideas about the Spotify:
“I don’t care how people get their music — I don’t care — as long as they’re not stealing it. So, really, it doesn’t matter to me if you’re listening to vinyl or you’re streaming; I don’t care. I’m not one of these people anymore that is against technology or the future. I was [against it] until I found out how our deal actually worked with things like Spotify. I was actually criticizing out of ignorance about two years ago. And then I learned how things were working specifically for us. I don’t know how it works for every band, but I got educated and I embraced Spotify big time after that.
I look at it this way: as long as a band is getting paid for what they do, I don’t care how people get their music; it doesn’t matter to me… however you enjoy it. At home now, I’m pretty much… We have music on… If we’re awake, there’s music on in the house, and it’s generally Spotify through out Sonos system, so you’ve got music in every room, and it’s Spotify, so you can hear whatever you want at any given time, because it has everything. It’s the greatest. [Laughs] Oh my God! It’s the best thing ever.”
