Music News: Senior figures in the music industry have warned that if the illegal sharing of albums doesnâ€™t stop immediately, all music could cease to exist within six months.
â€śMusic piracy presents a very large threat to our industry,â€ť said spokesman Milton Codicioso. â€śIf things continue the way they are, we believe that within six months all music – both recorded and live – will end forever.â€ť
Music bosses say by that time, all existing music will be ground up into powder to make fuel, and all live venues will have been bulldozed as â€śthanks to piracy, rubble seems more valuable than music.â€ť
â€śWe predict a bleak future, with children growing up never hearing the mandolin in a Mumford and Sons album,â€ť said Codicioso. “They’ll never know the lyrics to Milkshake by Kelis. They’ll never be able to appreciate the inner beauty of an artist like Susan Boyle.â€ť
â€śIf thatâ€™s the world you want your children to grow up in, then fine. Otherwise, buy some fucking CDâ€™s.â€ť
