Kid Rock Starves to Death: MP3 Piracy blamed

"If we don't do something, this technology is going to destroy the
record industry," said Nathan Davis, vice-president of Atlantic
Records, Kid Rock's label. "Just imagine if the oil-change industry
allowed the public to have direct access to oil and oil filters,
enabling them to change their car's oil themselves without going
through Jiffy Lube or Kwik Lube. People would stop going to oil-change
shops, and the entire industry would collapse. We can't let that
happen to us."
