Mccartney 'Doesn't Mind' Illegal Downloading

Subscribe To:

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has announced he is happy for people to download music illegally - just as THE BEATLES' deal with music giant iTunes fell through.
MCCartney recently revealed that a contract which would have seen the Fab Four's back catalogue released online was abandoned after Apple Corps bosses and EMI executives failed to agree on terms.
And now MCCartney insists he doesn't have a problem with people who take music from the internet without paying for it, although he does find the whole concept a little baffling.
He says, "It's weird for me (the concept of downloading). I'm not from that. I'm from going into a shop and buying a 45. We've come through vinyl, tapes and CDs - it's all the same, except people don't pay for it (now). I don't mind. It works out."
And the music legend is full of praise for British rockers Radiohead who took the innovative step of releasing their latest LP, In Rainbows, through the web and allowing fans to name their own price for it.
MCCartney adds, "I like it, it's a new idea. I like its anarchic-ness. I thought about buying it for one pence and telling my friends I'd paid GBP10!"
