Pete Townshend of The Who recently gave a speech at the inaugural John Peel Lecture in which he spent most of his time berating iTunes. This is my response to his wooly thinking and my general opinion of the MusicBizTM and whinging musicians. Part of this video is a “performance” of my now legendary blog entry “Death to the MusicBizTM”. Enjoy!

Watch the video in wonderful 720p HD quality!
