Pink Floyd Don’t Want Any New Fans And May Refuse Royalties

by | 12th, March 2010

PINK Floyd has decided not to woo any news fans to their music by winning a High Court ruling preventing EMI from selling individual tracks on the web.

Thanks to the ruling, new internet-savy fans won’t be able to hear only the best bits but will need to download the entire album and fast forward to the best bits.

Pink Floyd say single downloads compromise the artistic integrity of their works. To paraphrase the band, how can you enjoy the best bits if you don’t eat your meat?

Look out for Pink Floyd handing back all royalties earned from single sales and airplay… Or not.
