New York – Musician Jon Bon Jovi has accused Apple (NASD: AAPL) CEO Steve
Jobs of "killing" the music industry in an interview with The Sunday
"Kids today have missed the whole experience of putting
the headphones on, turning it up to 10, holding the jacket, closing their eyes
and getting lost in an album; and the beauty of taking your allowance money and
making a decision based on the jacket, not knowing what the record sounded
like, and looking at a couple of still pictures and imagining it," Bon
Jovi told The Sunday Times.
"I hate to sound like an old man now, but I
am, and you mark my words, in a generation from now people are going to say:
"Steve Jobs is personally responsible for killing the music
business," Bon Jovi concludes.
