Radiohead’s Thom Yorke predicts end of music industry

Thom Yorke, RadioHead's lead singer, is quoted in a Brit textbook as saying that the music industry may only have months to live, and that it will be no great loss when it ends.

What are your thoughts? Has the industry waited too long to respond to the market in ways that are compelling or have value? What was the last music that you bought, and how did you buy it? What would you like to see happen next?

Please leave your comments when you can. The future of music in the balance!? :-)

Future of Music Coalition

The Future of Music Coalition will have it Policy Summit on October 3-5, 2010 in Washington, D.C.  In ten years of fighting for musicians, they, as so many, have noticed a tremendous change in the music landscape. This has created tremendous challenges and opportunities for musicians as they struggle to find access to the market. As old business models are disrupted, there is also a renaissance of new approaches that show promise.

The Future of Music Coalition celebrates it 10th Anniversary at this Summit, focused on the artists' development,so that their talent and creativity can find expression in emerging markets. Early registration for this event, being held on the campus of Georgetown University, is currently $169.00.  Click here to register.

What are your thoughts on the future of music and efforts like FOMC to shape that future?
