David Peters, Frontmann der Band THROWDOWN, hat sich in einem Interview zu folgendem Statement über das immer weiter verbreitete Filesharen hinreißen lassen:
"We have sold around 200k records across 3 releases. Were not huge by any stretch but do alright and live off (and ON subsequently) the road. Fans and friends ask me all the time how I feel about "stealing music." I just told someone yesterday "I have a hard time seeing it as stealing when I dont see any money from cd sales to begin with. What are they actually TAKING from me?" If you want to squeeze an opinion on theft out of me, ask me about the dude that grabbed our tshirt off the table tonight in Detroit or better yet.. ask me about record contracts. I encourage our fans to acquire our album however they please. The philosophy Ive adopted is that if youre supporting disc sales, youre keeping the old model around longer the one that forces dudes like me to tour 9 mos/year if they want to make ends meet with a career in music. If you wanna really support a band, "steal" their album .help bury the label .and buy a tshirt when you show up at their show and sing every word."
THROWDOWN werden im Jahr 2008 ihr mittlerweile 10jähriges Band-Jubliäum feiern.
