“The Internet Is Good And Evil In Equal Measures”

JUDAS PRIEST bassist Ian Hill was interviewed at Hungary’s Fezen festival on July 29.

Asked if the the advent of the Internet and social media has made the marketing of music more complicated for a band like JUDAS PRIEST, Hill said: “It definitely makes it more complicated. Of course, yeah, I mean, there’s all different factions to take account now. The Internet, with YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, all these different facets, you have to cater to all of them, really. So that makes it a little bit more complicated.”

He continued: “The Internet is good and evil in equal measures. As soon as you have a product to offer, it’s instantly available to anybody with a computer — it’s just that simple. It’s also instantly available to anybody who wants to steal it off one of the pirate sites. So, like I say, it’s good and bad.”

Hill added: “When we first started out, you had a record player, and that was it. And you anticipated your favorite band’s album coming out; you waited for weeks for it. And you went to a record store, grabbed it, rushed home with it and put it on your little mono record player, and away it went. These days, obviously, the media is endless and the business has changed to that same degree as well.”
