I had to doublecheck, but I read it correctly: ‘Fake music’. How can music be fake? Unless we’re looking at something pretending to be something else. But that’s not it. ‘Fake music’ is real. Apparently I’m listening to it every day. What makes it ‘fake’?
I was upset. Joe Rogan was promoting dangerous lies and Spotify was supporting him. So I broke it off. To send a message. Inspired by Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and many other artists I highly respect. It didn’t last–and the reason is interesting.
