Jon Bon Jovi has taken aim at Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, accusing him of “killing” the music industry with iTunes. He is so bummed…says the ‘magic is gone!’

The rocker is saddened that the “magical” experience of buying records in a store is disappearing, brick-and-mortars stores becoming a thing of the past, due in part to the success of iTunes.

Bon Jovi told The Sunday Times Magazine, “Kids today have missed the whole experience of putting the headphones on, turning it up to 10, holding the jacket, closing their eyes and getting lost in an album; and the beauty of taking your allowance money and making a decision based on the jacket, not knowing what the record sounded like, and looking at a couple of still pictures and imagining it.”

“God, it was a magical, magical time,” he continues, “I hate to sound like an old man now, but I am, and you mark my words, in a generation from now people are going to say: ‘What happened?’

Do you agree or disagree with Jon….will you too miss going to buy a CD in a record store or not?

    Totally Disagree, as an Indie Artist myself I-Tunes helped open the door to indie artists,wheras before you had to be signed by a Major Label to even be heard and play by “their rules” ..The Market is now wide open to every musician.
