A couple of weeks ago Neil Young declared:

Streaming sucks. Streaming is the worst audio in history.

Sticking to his guns, it's now escalated to a point where he's removed the majority of his songs and albums from streaming services, including Spotify, Rdio, Tidal and Apple Music, as Rolling Stone reports. 'Rockin' In The Free World'? More like 'Rockin' In Neil Young's World' – just because his own personal opinion is that streaming sucks, he is willing to deprive his fans, and a younger potential fanbase, of his music. (Unless they care to listen to any of his releases for Geffen Records in the 1980s, which somehow evaded the chop). For shame.

It's not just streaming he hates; Young also had a go at the so-called vinyl revival earlier this year, calling it "nothing but a fashion statement."

At the time of his diatribe against music streaming, however, he did also quip "Never say never" – meaning that if the quality of sound available from streaming services increases, then he might consider putting his music back on.

Either that, or there's Pono.
