It’s nice to know that other musicians have similar thoughts on DRM.
Where would we all be without that first life changing album that a friend taped for us when we were 12? When I was in high school, I used to sneak my director’s albums out of the band room and take them home and tape them, then stealthily return them. (Well, I thought I was stealthy, come to find out, he knew all along.) In my adult life, I have purchased everyone of those albums that I could find.
