Neil Young Thinks Steve Jobs Would Have Saved Vinyl
I may be taking a shot in the dark here, but something tells me Neil Young doesn't own an iPod.
Young took part in a panel at the D: Dive Into Media conference this week to discuss a topic near and dear to his heart: preserving vinyl.
"My goal is to try and rescue the art form that I've been practicing for the past 50 years," he said "We live in the digital age and, unfortunately, it's degrading our music, not improving it."
And who does Neil Young thing would have ended up doing the most for vinyl? An unlikely candidate in the eyes of most digital music haters.
"Steve Jobs [was] a pioneer of digital music, and his legacy is tremendous," Young said. "But when he went home, he listened to vinyl. And you've got to believe that if he'd lived long enough, he would have done what I'm trying to do."
