Zero. I don't pay for Spotify or Tidal so I certainly wouldn't be paying for a music streaming service with just one artist on it. If they do something like that, I'll just illegally download the music I want. However, if they were to make his vault recordings available for sale, then I'd be willing to buy them providing they are reasonably priced.

And you don't feel even a tinge of guilt for your illegal downloading? Are you entitled to that music? You seem to brag about it. It's a shitty thing to do. This behavior has put countless record stores, labels, artists, etc..out of business. I'm not trying to sound righteous here. I've done my share of illegal downloading...but I'm not actually proud of it.


I illegally download and then buy the album when I can.
So what.

You are such an f____ hypocrite troll.

On another current threadt (that you started) you're saying how you can't believe how incredible "Dream Factory" is!

Guess what? That's a bootleg you're supporting.

What exactly is wrong with you?

The difference is that downloading the music would still allow every single person on this earth to aquire, listen to and, if they so chose to, buy the music. The painting on the other hand, would be gone, and nobody would be able to see it, admire it, or buy it if they wanted to. Very big difference

Why buy it if you've already illegally aquired it? You don't seem to see the point I'm trying to make here. What average Joe would give money for something that they've already gotten for free? I'm not talking about the numerous streaming services where you can listen to a song, decide that you like it and then purchase it. I'm talking about just downloading the music from some type of 'sharing' website.

Because that is the moral position to take if you're getting bootlegs.
