Cracker Singer Apologizes To Neil Young After Bandmate’s Attack Over HuffPost Piracy Article

Cracker’s David Lowery issued an apology yesterday to Neil Young after bandmate Johnny Hickman slammed Young for his stance about music piracy.

In a Huffington Post article Monday, Young was quoted comparing the piracy of music to being the new version of radio.

“It doesn’t affect me because I look at the internet as the new radio,” he said. “I look at the radio as gone… Piracy is the new radio. That’s how music gets around… That’s the radio. If you really want to hear it, let’s make it available, let them hear it, let them hear the 95 percent of it.”

Young’s comments were taken from the D: Dive Into Media conference he appeared at this past January.

According to Jambands.com, Hickman took to the band’s Twitter account to take it to Young.

“Fuck you Neil Young, I love most of your music (some of it sucks ass) that you made millions upon millions of dollars on,” Hickman tweeted. The full statement has been removed but Jambands.com had the full statement which continued: “…you own property all over the world, have 50 antique gas guzzling cars and a full recording studio..you have no say in the matter NOW you rich, greedy old asshole. We hundredaire working class musicians DO!”

When I was in Fort Mac, it got more intense. My son, who has cerebral
palsy, has lung damage, (so) he was wearing a mask to keep the toxic
things in the air out of his lungs and make it easy for him to have
lungs after he left.\"
