Mental health issues are on the rise and the topic is attracting attention. Errol Michael Henry explains why any refusal to ‘pay the price’ to defend ideals like: freedom, morality and creativity will result in ruinous ‘costs’ that our society simply cannot afford to pay.
The music industry has 2 faces. The general public see the fame, fortune and luxury lifestyles enjoyed by those who have ‘made it.’ What is much less obvious is the true ‘price’ some people have paid for not realising that this business has ‘A Dark Heart.’
Having copyrights, money or opportunities stolen from them has had a profoundly negative effect on musicians over many decades. The music business has always been very good at taking assets from people: now it must learn to give them back.
There comes appoint in the cycle of any industry where previously acceptable practices had to be brought to a halt. The music business has salted away billions of pounds of other people’s money and the time for proper compensation is upon us.
Freedom is one of the most precious commodities on earth, yet too many creative people find themselves and their music ‘tied up’ due to unfairly drafted, morally repugnant agreements. It’s time for the music industry to clean-up its act.
