AEROSMITH's JOEY KRAMER Says 'There Is Almost No Reason' For Band To Make Another Studio Album

AEROSMITH's JOEY KRAMER Says 'There Is Almost No Reason' For Band To Make Another Studio Album | Why Records Are Becoming Obsolete | Scoop.it
AEROSMITH drummer Joey Kramer says that "there is almost no reason" for the band to ever make another studio album considering the lukewarm response to AEROSMITH's last CD, 2012's "Music From Anoth...
Amanda Laflamme's insight:

This worries me as an upcoming professional in the industry, because I personally believe that it is still important to make albums and new music. Although albums are taking a backseat to streaming, I think that they are still important to many music enthusiasts. If we take away streaming all that we will have left are the albums. Making new music is the best way to make a band survive.

Debate.org is a dynamic social community where you can voice your opinion on today’s hottest issues.
Amanda Laflamme's insight:

I included this source because i liked that it had good information from a variety of sources. Although this may not be as reliable (since so many people can write into it) I think it is important to get so many views on it. I liked that there was a poll to begin the debate, and even the debate shows that many people are unsure of what the industry is moving towards.

Taylor Swift sold 1.287 million albums last week. But the future of music is ... - Vox | Why Records Are Becoming Obsolete | Scoop.it
Taylor Swift is a masterful pop star and an even more talented businesswoman. Selling 1.287 million albums last week is great for her, but it isn't her end game, and it shouldn't be the music industry's either.
Amanda Laflamme's insight:

Although this may not link to the importance of albums directly, it does show how streaming is becoming the preferred way to listen to music. This article explains how Taylor Swifts album sales were the best for 2014, but that she hopes to sell even more by removing her music from streaming sights.

This article talks about album sales from an upcoming musician's point of view. He also reaches out to "experts" to get there opinions on if CDs are becoming a thing of the past.

There are programs and websites where you can get just about any kind of music for free these days.
Amanda Laflamme's insight:

The author of this article seems surprised that CDs are still around. He doesn't seem to believe that they will last much longer, but that the music industry will come up with something more upgraded for the future. I personally disagree with his point of view. Although I do believe that there will be a new technology, I don't believe that CDs will be disappearing anytime soon.

​Aerosmith made more money from video games than from any one ... | Why Records Are Becoming Obsolete | Scoop.it
Planning to make it big in the music industry by releasing a hit album? Dream On. A long forgotten PC Mag article resurfaced this week to remind us that.
Amanda Laflamme's insight:
