What do you think about people downloading music instead of buying records now a days? I mean, it's the way it's gone, there are pros and cons to it but there's literally nothing you can do about it so you need to just deal with it in whatever way youcan. 

How do you think the music industry have changed because of this? Well streaming dominates the charts, that's bad. I think streaming has a lot of pros but how it dominates the charts has sort of stopped music being a cultural force I think.
