Slash claims music has 'lost its magic'
Ex-Guns N’Roses guitarist Slash has claimed that music has 'lost its magic.'
The 46-year-old, who last week confirmed he will be attending his former band’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, told Absolute Radio that the thrill of listening to a new record for the first time has now been ruined thanks to the concept of downloading:
He said: "There was a certain excitement that came with the release of a new record, and a lot of it was just the package itself, and it was something that you milled over while you were listening to the record.”
The iconic rocker, who releases his second solo album, ‘Apocalyptic Love,’ on May 21, went onto add: “It's not even tangible any more. It's convenient, but you lose the magic of it.”
