No one has changed the way we as a culture consume music quite like Steve Jobs. Whether you loved him or hated him, this much is undeniably true.
When news of Jobs' death made its way online, it took no time at all for everyone's Twitter and Facebook feeds to be clogged with messages of condolences and remembrance for the beloved public figuree. Members of the music community that Jobs so helped to revolutionize were among those paying their respects, and we've compiled a brief list of some of those who spoke out about the late Apple co-founder.
Guns N' Roses: "When people say it's not about the possessions but how you're remembered — they are talking about people like Steve Jobs. RIP."
Coldplay: "We are so sad to hear about the passing of Steve Jobs. In all of our encounters with him he was such a lovely man, and always so humble about his incredible talents. Like all of the people he knew, and the millions of others he didn't, we will miss him."
Nikki Sixx: "RIP Steve Jobs. Steve was of his era what Thomas Edison was to the beginning of the 20th century. You made all our lives a better place."

He showed great strength and perseverance through his illness and continued to be an innovator all the while remaining positive while fighting his battle with cancer. I can only thank Steve for his innovation, inspiration and creativity while touching all of our lives in some way shape or form. Again, my condolences. He will be missed."

Fred Durst: "RIP Steve Jobs! True visionary."
