De-Myth vocalist-lead guitarRichard Jones on the global Radio announced  yesterday an upcoming change. Last. fm will only be free in USA, UK and Germany. Other listeners are very soon required $3.00 per month for listening! There are 30 million listeners from all over the world. There are over 7 million tracks available. work with 280 000 labels and artists from all over the world, I am one of them.  

It is is very sad. There are many listeners who are going to leave their beloved because of this. In a couple of hours got over 1600 blog comments about the announcement so disabled further comments. $3.00 is much money in some parts in the world. A girl from Colombia wrote that she has to pay a sum that would be as big as 12 euro i Europe every month.

Until now I have loved I have listeners from different parts of the world that send me wonderful feedback that really makes my day. I am of course a listener, too. I listen to music in a way I never did before, I get recommendations from other listeners that  introduce me new music. There are really people who love music, they live and breath music and are the best listeners ever. Many of them listen to music the whole time they are awake. 

We have to try to stop this madness. Keep free!

  1. Yeah, it really sucks. 30 million users from around the world, I’ll bet about 30 thousand will pay, the rest will leave like our friend Luigi from Italy. They’re also making listening with 3rd party players a subscriber-only feature, no matter where you live.
