Neil Young says he's removing his music from all streaming services because his songs are being "devalued by the worst quality in the history of broadcasting."First off, it's impossible to "devalue" a Neil Young song. And if it were, you certainly wouldn't devalue it by having low bitrate sound to capture a man who deliberately sings and plays horribly.
Of course, Neil Young has tried this scam before. It's to sell his own overpriced and underperforming (in terms of both sales and audio playback) Pono MP3 player.
Young has long been vocal about the need to prioritize sound quality.
That explains why he developed the portable digital media player and download service Pono, which boasts higher-quality audio than its peers.
