The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney On Sean Parker: “He’s An Asshole”

    Ever wondered what the Black Keys’ drummer Patrick Carney thinks about Sean Parker, aka the co-founder of Napster and financial supporter of Spotify? Well, you’re about to read it. Apparently Carney thinks dude is “an asshole.” OK, that’s fine, but why?

    “That guy has $2 billion that he made from figuring out ways to steal royalties from artists, and that’s the bottom line. You can’t really trust anybody like that.”

    “I honestly don’t want to see Sean Parker succeed in anything. I imagine if Spotify becomes something that people are willing to pay for, then I’m sure iTunes will just create their own service, and they’re actually fair to artists.”
