U2 Slighted by Thieves
I hate it when stuff like this happens. Apparently someone stole a rough cut of U2's yet-to-be-released album Vertigo from a photo shoot in France. Lead singer, Bono's response was to put the album out on iTunes Music Store if they find that the music is being shared illegally on P2P networks.
"It would be a real pity. It would screw up years of work and months of planning... But once it's out, it's out."
And the final result? Outside of the potential 10 million loss, hardcopy album's would be put out by the end of this month. I can't lie, I've been waiting anxiously for the new material, but I feel a bit upset knowing that the music may have been rushed due to someone's criminal action. And what's worse, sometimes rough drafts shouldn't be shown to the world, some of that stuff should be left well enough alone. This applies to many artforms by the way.
