JBV is not a fan of Steve Jobs. In fact, he says that Jobs is “personally responsible for killing music.” This quote comes from the Sunday Times Magazine in the UK:
“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.
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?’. Steve Jobs is personally responsible for killing the music business.
Really, Jon? Really? Are you grumpy because there are kids on your lawn?
