Ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr** has praised Radiohead's decision to let fans decide the worth of new album In Rainbows.
Speaking at the Q awards yesterday, 1998, Marr told the British Broadcasting Corporation: "I think it's a really fantastic idea because it puts the responsibility back on people's own consciences and deals with people as grown ups."_
It must be all the children. All the children are paying pennies for the new record. Their pennies.
"It's not hiding behind any corporate nonsense, it's just saying 'this is the way it is, let's get on with it'.
"Everyone knows you can get your music for free, so let's see if you really want to show the band your appreciation."
How much do you appreciate?
