Missing the Hard Copy?... Invisible or Digital' Copy is the Future of Music

WALTERs BIRTHDAY CD/see credit
I read today about some guys in Florida that are, it said...well, 'the future of music'....they're making it BIG (lotsa money)...in digital distribution....that's what the post called ...sorry folks....can'y find it now Jan....what is meant...is that there no more vinyl hard copy....'er' records or CDs around....they're so old fashion anyway now days everything's done electronicly. NO mess or fuss. Just pay online the and the music downloaded onto your computer....you just listen -.
O.K.,O.K.,....What about the folks that don't have computers or so called 'Smart Phones'...what then?...Steve doesn't do computers etc. Are they just outta luck?...he'd miss music...it does't seem logical to me. Or good money-wise idea?...you?
Anyway...what about creating a CD, and finally holding it in your hands after so much work?....then, giving it to your friends or selling it at a gig?...it's pure pleasure...Musicians would miss all of that.
What about the future of live music or even musicians?...It's easier to get machine music than learn an instrument, rehearse, book gigs and make sure Club owners and musicians all make enough to live. I hope  real music never comes to an end...it fills us with wonder and inspiration....aarts and creating music. Some things are worth more than money.
I'm gonna post a link to that post I read this morning...O.K? Think about it...wouldn't we miss a lot by just doing ' the NEW Way ' only?...I believe so. Jan
