Do you remember
when Napster was huge (about ten years ago), and digital file sharing was on everyone's minds? Metallica and The Red Hot
Chili Peppers were sort of leading the anti-p2p charge. Several years later, when the iTunes Music Store demonstrated
that the online distribution of music could be accomplished successfully, the Peppers refused to participate, stating
that (among other things), they didn't like that customers were able to purchase individual tracks, as it interrupted
the flow of the album, or some other artsy thing like that.
Anyway, this is why I was very surprised to find
nine Peppers albums in the iTMS this morning [iTunes link
including some exclusive stuff and videos. I'm glad you guys have come around.
