Vince Gill speaks of 99 cent music, industry downturn

On the changes in the music business, Vince Gill recently said “The hardest thing to embrace for me, with all sincerity is the de-valuzation of what music is deemed to be worth.”

He adds, “That’s what I struggle with the most. Whatever anyone creates, its value is 99 cents. That’s what a record cost in 1960. You don’t have to look too hard to see that in the last four years, the industry is less than half what it used to be. I don’t know why that is, but if you have the opportunity to give somebody something that will last them a lifetime — and you think it’s worth 99 cents, that’s criminal to me.”
