Melbourne: Rock singer songwriter John Cougar Mellencamp has said that iPods render music ‘unrecognisable.’
Mellencamp, 58, who attended a seminar at the Grammy Museum in the US, lashed out all things digital, and said he’d listened to Beatles tracks on remastered CDs, then found the same tracks ‘unrecognisable’ on an iPod.
“You could tell it was those guys singing, but the warmth and quality of what the artist intended for us to hear was so vastly different,” News.com.au quoted him as saying.
He also stated that the Internet is more dangerous than the atom bomb.
“I think the Internet is the most dangerous thing invented since the atomic bomb. It’s destroyed the music business. It’s going to destroy the movie business,” he added.
