You can add that artists get paid peanuts for their music.I think spotify is a load of bollocks. Renting access to music, ridiculous.
This is one of my biggest problems with it. I like to own the music I listen to, and to do whatever I want with it. Spotify severely limits my possibilities. I can't carry it around on a hard drive and play it on a device I don't have Spotify on, I can't burn it on a CD or anything, and worst of all, I'm completely at their mercy when it comes to availability. Some people here have noted that Spotify removed some non-album Maiden tracks. A lot of artists I listen to don't have their entire discography on Spotify either. So although it currently, for pragmatic reasons, is my main source of music, I don't see it becoming my one-and-only stop any time.I think spotify is a load of bollocks.

Have you ever watched a speech of Bruce about MTV? or about fashion and similar other things those so-called "normal people" are caged in?Metallica, is considered as mega stars of rock and popular music more than "just a metal band". Most of their audiences are the "normal people". Is it kind of demise for Maiden? I don't know - maybe a little.
