This just in, Elton John wants to close down the internet!
Never one to keep his opinions to himself, the Rocket Man has waded through the intertubes with all guns blazing.
He claims it is destroying good music, saying: “The internet has stopped people from going out and being with each other, creating stuff. Instead they sit at home and make their own records, which is sometimes OK but it doesn’t bode well for long-term artistic vision. Hopefully the next movement in music will tear down the internet.”
I’m not sure what kind of fantasy world Elton John is living in but last time I checked, music couldn’t stop something as huge as the internet.. As someone that has called himself “the biggest technophobe of all time” and stated that he doesn’t even have a mobile phone, he shouldn’t really be commenting on the internet.
Sorry, but I’m not going to be taking any tech advice from this guy…
“I mean, get out there — communicate.”
Welcome to the year 2007, Elton. People have been using the Internet to communicate with each other for well over 10 years. It is a great way to share ideas about music, etc. with others.
You, my friend, just made a complete arse of yourself. Call your PR agent- you are going to need a lot of help to get out of this one.
