Lars Ulrich: 'I Love Spotify'
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich recently praised Spotify streaming service, describing it as something that definitely works for the current state of music industry. During a recent NME TV chat, Ulrich was asked on whether he sees Spotify as the future of music. "I don't know if it's the only future, I don't see things that black and white in my life, but certainly it's been a great experience," the drummer kicked off. Lars then praised the company's founder, saying, "Daniel Ek is a great man. You can tell a lot about a company by the people, that's my belief. And Danny's just a great man and has a great soul." He continued, "I love Spotify. Now whether - we're talking about 10 years from now - whether it's the future or not. I don't know if it's limited to a yes or no, but it's certainly working right now," Ulrich concluded. Several other prominent rock figures have given their opinions on Spotify. As previously reported, Atoms for Peace decided to quit the streaming service in protest, calling it "an equation that just doesn't work." Disturbed's David Draiman on the other hand praised the company, saying that "Spotify has given us a platform to finally combat piracy on a real level." Are streaming services the best solution for the music business? Let us know in the comments.
