With his failed demand that Spotify axe Joe Rogan’s podcast, or lose his music portfolio, Neil Young has canceled himself, and the generation of hippie boomers he represents. The waning power of the Woodstock generation was on full display at Young selfishly demanded censorship of Rogan’s platform. Almost instantly, Spotify chose Rogan, who reportedly has a $100 million contract with the streaming platform, over the rock legend. The Blaze’s Carlos Garcia reports:
Media streaming network Spotify began to delete songs from legendary musician Neil Young after he issued an ultimatum over Joe Rogan’s podcast and what he saw as coronavirus misinformation.
Young had previously issued an open letter to his management team and his record label asking for his music to be removed unless the company censored Rogan.
“I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them,” he wrote. “Please act on this immediately today and keep me informed of the time schedule.”
On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Young’s music was being taken off the service, citing people familiar with the matter.
The report said Young had been in negotiations with his label, Warner Music Group’s Warner Records, and Spotify, but that he would not relent from his ultimatum.
The process of deleting his music from the platform could take hours.
