Jon Bon Jovi says Steve Jobs killed the music biz

Jon Bon Jovi believes that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is personally responsible for killing the music business.

It’s amazing how 49-year-old Jon manages to sound at least 30 years older, just by starting his sentence with “Kids today…”

Here’s what Jon told The Sunday Times Magazine, “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,” he continued, “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.”
