Steve Jobs killed the music industry

Claims Jon Bon Jovi
Popular beat combo artist Jon Bon Jovi claims that Steve Jobs is responsible for killing off the music industry. The crooner claims that the head of Apple’s cargo cult has taken away the infatuation with music his generation was privy to.

Kids of today have missed putting the headphones on, cranking it up to 11, holding the jacket, closing their eyes and getting lost in an album, Mr Jovi claimed. They have missed the beauty of blowing your allowance money and making a decision based on the jacket, not knowing what the record sounded like, and looking at a couple of still pictures and imagining it, he said.

While he is less concerned with the problems of digital piracy, Bon Jovi thinks that the processed music environment fostered by iTunes has killed discovering music and the effect that has on a person. It was a magical time in the days before iTunes. And while Mr Jovi said that he hates to sound like an old bloke in a generation from now people are going to say: ‘What happened?’

As a result Steve Jobs is personally responsible for killing the music business. To be fair to Steve Jobs it was the whole MP3 thing. I realised that it is nearly three months since I stuck a CD into my stereo. And Jovi is right the childhood magic of album covers is long gone.
