Pirates of the high Cs put new Stones album on Internet

"A Bigger Bang" is due for release on Monday but illegal downloading from several websites could cost the legendary British group a fortune in lost sales.

A spokeswoman for the Stones' record company EMI told The Times: "The first low-quality files of new Rolling Stones music were found illegally posted on Monday, the same day we began making the new album available for consumers to listen to via radio and streaming.

The entire 16-track album is available to listen to on the Stones' website.

Full Story.

Wow

I hope I'm able to perform when I'm 126 years old.

I'm alittle confused about what the exact problem is. As the article states, the entire 16 track album is available to listen to at the official site - so how can the floating of "low quality" files cause "huge amounts of lost sales"???

If I was doing PR for the Stones, I'm not sure I would want to use the words "low quality" and "new album" in the same press release.

Whatever eventually kills the memebers of the Rolling Stones, you can be sure that it won't be hunger!
