ANTHRAX’s CHARLIE BENANTE Says YouTube’s Business Model Is Based On ‘Stealing’
In a brand new interview with Fangoria, ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante spoke about how the importance of making music videos has changed in the three decades since the band’s inception. He said: “I don’t think there is that real urgency to do a video in the way it once was. I mean, when you were doing a record, you were already picking like two or three songs that were going to be your videos. The video was basically gonna be this huge marketing tool that would shoot your record sales from ten copies to ten thousand copies. It’s not like that anymore, because the whole world has changed. The business model has changed completely. Basically, the floor has dropped out. There really is no other way of marketing your record like the old-school way. Now you have to think of other ways to reach people.”
