Jon Bon Jovi is accusing Apple co-founder Steve Jobs of "killing" the music industry with iTunes.
"Kids today have missed the whole experience of putting the headphones on, turning it up to 10, holding the jacket, closing their eyes and getting lost in an album; and the beauty of taking your allowance money and making a decision based on the jacket, not knowing what the record sounded like, and looking at a couple of still pictures and imagining it," he says in The Sunday Times Magazine (via New York magazine). "God, it was a magical, magical time.
"I hate to sound like an old man now, but I am, and you mark my words, in a generation from now people are going to say: 'What happened?'" he goes on. "Steve Jobs is personally responsible for killing the music business."
