Keith Nelson Kritik Album Gratis U2


Daily Concerts, Jakarta -  Ketika banyak fans U2 yang merasa senang ketika band asal Irlandia tersebut merilis album secara gratis di iTunes, gitaris Buckcherry – Keith Nelson menganggap keputusan itu sangatlah “mengganggu”. Seolah mengatakan kepada fans bahwa musik mereka itu tak begitu berharga.

Dalam sebuah interview dengan Northwest Music Scene, Nelson berkata, “I think music has been devalued in the eyes of the consumer, to the point now where a band like U2 decides to just give its music away and basically tells people that their music isn’t worth anything, it should be treated like something free, and that’s a bummer.” Ia menambahkan, “I know what it takes to make a record, I know what it takes to write a meaningful record full of songs, and get it into the consumers’ hands, and to me music still has a value, so it’s definitely something that I still struggle with.”

U2 mengejutkan dunia musik dengan tampil di peluncuran iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, dan Apple Watch. Setelah perform, U2 mengumumkan bahwa album baru mereka – Songs of Innocence tersedia di iTunes secara gratis. Pada senin (15/9), iTunes mengumumkan bahwa 33 juta orang telah mengunduh album tersebut.

Sudah rahasia umum bahwa U2 menerima uang sebesar US$100 juta, atau setara Rp 1.2 triliun dari Apple untuk memberikan albumnya secara gratis di iTunes.

“It is crazy, and I’m sure the band got paid, so they made their money, but they’ve sent a message to everyone that music is free, and that’s disturbing.” He continued, “It’s easy to do that when you’re a multi-millionaire-billionaire and money isn’t really something that you worry about, but when you’re a working rock ‘n’ roll band and you count on every dollar, it’s disappointing to see someone do that. I don’t really like the message that it sends that music is free,” Tutup Nelson. (M. Naufal)
