It happened whilst I was still working for HMV, the move was pretty messed up, they, somehow didn't manage to take into account the extra time to get
product from Germany to the UK - AND new releases came in 2-3 days late for the first few weeks!!!
The whole industry is ludicrously out-dated and constantly outshone by kids in their bedrooms either downloading or making music. Also take into
account that the fact is - music really isn't that exciting anymore these days...
Who needs Coldplay? Who needs another 3 versions of them?
Kids will pay for Xbox and PS3 games though because they're exciting - to them.
The glory days of the 50s/60s/70s and 80s are gone, record companies won't take the chance on something they believe to be art when a rival label has
a band that sells well, they just find a soundalike.
Listen to a uy like Simon Cowell who said he wouldn't sign the Beatles these days.
