Dave Grohl enters the Spotify debate, says he “doesn’t fucking care”

The newest iteration of those statements comes courtesy of Dave Grohl, who responded to Digital Spy’s questions about his stance on The Great Taylor Swift Spotify Debate by quite literally saying, “I don’t fucking care.” [….] Grohl went on to explain that his dismissive attitude comes not from being a salty old punk rocker who’s been slamming in the pit since before any of you twerps were born, but from his reliance on live music for his income stream. Using the record mainly as a promotional item and making most of their money from touring is a tactic that bands have been relying on since the days when it was record labels ripping them off, not Swedish streaming services. “You want people to fucking listen to your music? Give them your music. And then go play a show,” Grohl said. “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.” – Katie Rife,The A.V.
