Neil Young has pulled his music from all streaming services because he doesn't think the audio quality is any good. The singer made the announcement on his Facebook page. "Streaming has ended for me. I hope this is ok for my fans," he writes. "It's not because of the money, although my share (like all the other artists) was dramatically reduced by bad deals made without my consent. It's about sound quality. I don't need my music to be devalued by the worst quality in the history of broadcasting or any other form of distribution. I don't feel right allowing this to be sold to my fans. It's bad for my music."
He then posted a second message declaring that "streaming sucks," telling fans that "AM radio kicked streaming's ass. Analog Cassettes and 8 tracks also kicked streaming's ass, and absolutely rocked compared to streaming. Streaming sucks. Streaming is the worst audio in history." However, he hasn't completely ruled out returning. "Make streaming sound good and I will be back."
