Neil Young On B**tlegs

"Y'mean all this bootleg stuff? It doesn't bother me. More power to them – they can sell 'em in the parking lot. I don't give a shit. I have nothing against bootlegs – I think for an artist like me, they're essential. There's just no way that the record company's gonna accept as many records as I would like to give them." – Neil Young

Peter Buck's only complaint is when people buy crappily recorded shows.

That's R.E.M.'s Peter Buck ... not wee Peter Buck Haahnster.

The Grateful Dead made a wonderful industry out of legitimizing "bad" things like bootlegs.

I say, it's the Amurican Way!

Just to be clear, I'm not a huge of fan of selling bootlegs. Now, as for trading them...

Now there's an artist in it for the music and not some dumbass whinging about how they're losing cash from downloads like those lunkheads a while back.
