This letter, signed by a ton of artists and pictured above, is set to appear in an ad in Billboard:
We are big fans of Pandora. That's why we helped give the company a discount on rates for the past decade.Pink Floyd, Down, Primus, Dead Kennedys (with our without Jello?), Nas, Alabama, Sheryl Crow and many more big major label names signed this (or someone signed it on their behalf). Check out the full list below, and head to fairpayforartists.com for more information on their point of view..
Pandora is now enjoying phenomenal success as a Wall Street company. Skyrocketing growth in revenues and users. We celebrate that. At the same time, the music community is just now beginning to gain its footing in the new digital world.
Pandora's principal asset is the music.
Why is the company asking Congress once again to step in and gut the royalties that thousands of musicians rely upon? That's not fair, and that's not how partners work together.
Congress has many pressing issues to consider, but this is not one of them. Let's work this out as partners and continue to bring fans the great musical experience they rightly expect.
The issue is that Pandora is supporting the Internet Radio Fairness Act which they say will "help end the long-standing discrimination against internet radio". Artists are mad because that possibly means less money for them, but Pandora and other Internet radio providers argue they can't stay in business the way things are now.
Morrissey on 'Fallon'
Morrissey, as we mentioned he would, played Fallon last night (10/4), one night before his tour begins (tonight) in Boston. He covered Frankie Valli's "To Give (The Reason I Live)" as well as "You Have Killed Me" from 2006's Ringleader of the Tormentors. You can watch the videos below.
Was also recently mentioned that Morrissey claims Coachella will go vegetarian for a Smiths reunion. We however didn't mention the latest rumor -- claiming that the Smiths actually were reuniting in 2013 -- which was, naturally, quickly denied by Morrissey's rep, but not before the Internet was full of new articles.
Fallon videos are below...
