The singer says the internet stole the record industry and the bands incentive to go in the studio.
The front-man told Rolling Stone, “We’ve talked about it, but it’s not going to be easy. There’s no record industry anymore. Why would I make a record?”
“I would have to pay to make a record. There’s no royalties so I can’t see that ever happening. There’s no record business. How do you get the money to make the records? I don’t know.
Daltrey says he can’t afford to make a record and give it away for free, adding, “I’ve got other things I could waste the money on.”
The singer says streaming music does not help musicians or pay them much and he see’s the same thing happening to film and television.
He’s also not a fan of the internet saying, I don’t think it’s improved people’s lives. It’s just made them do more work and feel like they’re wanted a bit more, but it’s all bollocks.” He says “Live in the real world.”
The band last album was “Endless Wire” in 2006. They also released the stand-alone single “Be Lucky” in 2014. – by John Beaudin
