That's like saying that writing is no good and the only good story is
one spoken by a public speaker. :)
They each require skill in slightly different (but related) domains.
Production (and I don't mean turning up the compression) is an art just
like performance is. I love a good live band, but if you limit yourself
to only live performances (and recordings of live performances) you lose
out on a lot of interesting music.
Anyways, I'm done bitching. :)
As far as being on topic goes, DRM sucks, but I unfortunately vote with
my apathy. :P I use iTunes music store fairly often, but I'll buy CDs
as well. I know I should care, but it's hard to when no matter what you
do the artist is still getting screwed.
