In a recent interview with Dash Radio, Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis spoke on how internet changed the whole music world.
“Culturally, do you think that kids that are living on their phones now and things like that – do you think it’s bad for culture? Because obviously, we grew up in a time when that wasn’t the case. Everyone’s whole life is on display now.”
“Yeah, it makes it more difficult to be unique, original and yourself because everybody gets exposed to everything. Which is tricky but that’s for music too.
Joe Walsh was talking about how the internet killed rock and roll because you just press a button and you can hear it all but you used to have to work for it, live for it and breathe for it. You know, sweat for it, bleed for it and come for it.
And now it’s just like, ‘Oh, there it is on the internet.’ So, it’s a little less weighty, but that’s okay, we’ll get through it.“
