A point of contention with me, and I would hope, many other independent musicians, is the attitude of "music should be free" as expressed by a few of the young people in this interview. 
Really? Free...???
Then how about you come work for me - for free?
You can load my gear in and out of venues, serve me my drinks, fix me my meals, clean my house, wash my car, tend my pets when I'm traveling, etc. all for FREE.  Ok?  
Hey youth - Fuck You.

Horse____. You should do your craft for free and see if you can make your house and car payments. Ridiculous notion.

One of the best INXS songs! Plus one of the best 80s songs.

I think Taylor is absolutely right in this one!

Artists already only receive an insultingly paltry sum for streams of their music, so for Apple to request them to give up three months of potential revenue (even as small as that may be) is disgusting and offensive.
 
Taylor Swift slams Apple because of its decision to force the artists to cover the cost (and risk) of the three months free trial of Apple Music. 

And she is not alone. See here: http://goo.gl/rc83ZM here: http://goo.gl/u2XHdz ...and here: http://goo.gl/ouZHkj

As an individual, I find Apple's conduct to be highly problematic as well. It's behaving like Ebenezer Scrooge. Apple has $160 billion in cash. That's enough money to completely cover the expected revenue of Apple Music for 12 years. It's so much money that Apple could easily buy all the major record labels. And yet, to launch their new service, it is unwilling to cover the cost of the first three month trial. 

So, spot on Taylor! Why should artists, and especially the small indie artists who are already struggling financially, pay for the cost of launching Apple Music?

Here is Taylor's post: http://taylorswift.tumblr.com/post/122071902085/to-apple-love-taylor

I'm planning on playing SLC soon ~ who's in? 
Looking for additional musicians to join in the chaos as well as a small dance troupe to perform with the band.

Thanks Rieder, that would be awesome! You have so many great shows there, it would be nice to have the infrastructure in place. If I still lived in SLC I'd offer to run sound for you.
