T Bone Burnett Goes on Anti-Free Streaming Warpath at Americana Fest Panel

“The technologists have been saying, ‘Look, we’ll play your music for free, and then you sell T-shirts’,” said [T Bone Burnett], addressing [17th Annual Americana Music Festival & Conference] Friday (Sept. 23). “I tell you what: You play my music for free and I’ll sell records. That is a much better connection between the fan and the audience than a T-shirt.” – Chris Willman, Billboard http://ift.tt/2dbqI3y
