Bon Jovi: 'Steve Jobs is Personally Responsible for Killing the Music Business'

Rocker Jon Bon Jovi told The Sunday Times Magazine that 'Steve Jobs is personally responsible for killing the music business' in a recently published interview.

"Kids today have missed the whole experience of putting the headphones on, turning it up to 10, holding the jacket, closing their eyes and getting lost in an album; and the beauty of taking your allowance money and making a decision based on the jacket, not knowing what the record sounded like, and looking at a couple of still pictures and imagining it. God, it was a magical, magical time. I hate to sound like an old man now, but I am, and you mark my words, in a generation from now people are going to say: 'What happened?'. Steve Jobs is personally responsible for killing the music business."

One could argue the exact opposite in fact. iTunes lets many musicians get their music out to the world who otherwise wouldn't have had the means to do so.

Interestingly, CultofMac notes that Bon Jovi sits on the White House Council for Community Solutions with Jobs’ wife, Laurene Powell Jobs. Think she'll have a few words for him?
