Robert Smith doesn’t approve of Radiohead release

Robert Smith has said that he doesn’t like the pay-what-you-like way that Radiohead released 2007 album ‘In Rainbows’, because he thinks it devalues the music.

Smith said: “The Radiohead experiment of paying what you want – I disagreed violently with that. You can’t allow other people to put a price on what you do, otherwise you don’t consider what you do to have any value at all, and that’s nonsense”.

“If I put a value on my music and no-one’s prepared to pay that, then more fool me, but the idea that the value is created by the consumer is an idiot plan, it can’t work”.
