Most everyone gets a video link except...

Nice little article with video links to 7 of the 10 songs.
Of course, P reaches out from wherever and makes sure his will be ignored.
Silly man. The internet was your best free publicity.

The internet did not put any money in his pocket and after he died he sold 7 million albums because people could not get most of it for free. He did get the last laugh.

1. Of course, the internet did put money in his pocket - simply not as much as he considered was right. We have no idea what comparative sales would have been, had he allowed 'promotion' of his material online through these channels during his lifetime.

2. He'd already had his last laugh - at best, this would have been a rictus.

ALT+PLS+RTN: Pure as a pane of ice. It's a gift.

So it took an EXTRORDINARY event for him to be "proven right". Hint: that means he wasn't.

.

Also: he was dead.

Oh, and Adele made $200 million IN ONE YEAR.
