Dave Grohl Kindly Responds to Taylor Swift Spotify Debate

Dave Grohl Kindly Responds to Taylor Swift Spotify Debate

Taylor Swift and Spotify have been going back and forth over Swift’s Label pulling her music from Spotify. Many artists have also commented on Spotify and how they think it devalues music. Dave Grohl – front man for the Foo Fighters – decided to add his own thoughts on the matter.

“Me personally? I don’t f**king care. That’s just me, because I’m playing two nights at Wembley next summer.”

“I want people to hear our music, I don’t care if you pay $1 or f**king $20 for it, just listen to the f**king song. But I can understand how other people would object to that.”

Grohl also takes an old-school approach to how he thinks people should listen to music.

“”You want people to f**king listen to your music? Give them your music. And then go play a show. They like hearing your music? They’ll go see a show. To me it’s that simple, and I think it used to work that way.”

“When we were young and in really noisy, crappy punk rock bands there was no career opportunity and we loved doing it and people loved f**king watching it and the delivery was completely face to face personal.

“That’s what got people really excited about s**t. Nowadays there’s so much focus on technology that it doesn’t really matter.”

Do you agree with what Grohl says? Should the way people listen to music not matter? The artists makes music because they love it and people listen to music because they also love it. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
