Tweedy Interview

Wired interviews Wilco band-leader Jeff Tweedy.

It may help that I'm a Wilco fan, but I think Tweedy's attitude towards their audience and file-sharing could hardly be healthier. The rest of the music industry would do well to follow his example. Here's the best bit:
Treating your audience like thieves is absurd. Anyone who chooses to listen to our music becomes a collaborator.

People who look at music as commerce don't understand that. They are talking about pieces of plastic they want to sell, packages of intellectual property.

I'm not interested in selling pieces of plastic.
