Neil Young has posted a statement on Facebook stating that “Streaming has ended for me”.

Apparently the sound quality of the current streaming services has caused him to pull his music from these services.

In another Facebook message he claimed “AM radio kicked streaming’s ass. Analog Cassettes and 8 tracks also kicked streaming’s ass, and absolutely rocked compared to streaming.” But he still has hope in regards to streaming, claiming that he would return if the quality of the sound were improved.

I personally think streaming is o.k but I still prefer listening to my own library of high quality recordings, that i’ve ripped from compact discs at a higher bit rate and stored on a local drive.
