Shirley Manson: 'The Music Industry Has Imploded'
Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson has labelled the music industry a "dinosaur". The singer believes the system has fallen apart because it's failed to keep up with how young people consume music. She told Metro: "It's a shell of what it once was and the industry hasn't got it's head around the fact a lot of young people don't listen to the radio or buy records - the industry has been slow to adapt and become a dinosaur." Manson added: "When corporations become dinosaurs they get desperate and greedy and become involved in ugly practices. The good thing about the collapse is it's got rid of characters who have no interest in music. The workers left at the companies are passionate and care about bands." Garbage recently released their new album "Not Your Kind Of People," their first since 2005's "Bleed Like Me." Thanks for the report to Nme.com.
