Slipknot’s Corey Taylor explained why it made sense for Tool to wait so long to release their music on streaming platforms.
The singer recently spoke to Rock Feed about what it’s like for artists to stream their music. Taylor discussed the difference in royalty pay in radio compared to on-demand media.
“We don’t have a problem with streaming,” the musician explained. “We don’t have a problem with people listening to our music. What we have a problem with is these streaming services basically treating it like we owe them.”
“There’s a reason that Tool waited as long as they did to put the stuff up on streaming services,” he insisted. “Because they knew they weren’t gonna be compensated for something that they worked their asses off for.”
