Sean Kinney, drummer for Alice In Chains, was asked by Crushtor.net about making music in the 21st century:
"It's a world where people steal music and record companies can't sell music. They sort of screwed up. It's such a different time and place; there are so many real unknowns now. It's going to be really cool. . . The great thing is that you can get your music out to a lot of people. But on the flipside, people want it for free. Studio time isn't free; we put a lot of money and effort into what we do. They expect us to be talking to them twenty-four hours a day on blogs and things. It takes the mystery away, I think. We're not from that 'era.' That was never really our 'thing.' It'll be interesting to see how we fit in, if we fit in."
So, let's see if we can get this straight: he loves the internet because you can reach large numbers of people, but he only wants them to be interested when it suits him? He thinks that it's "going to be really cool" but seems to hate all the opportunites that actually make it really cool.
What's really horrible is that - in about three years - we're going to hear the scream as he catches up with Twitter.
