As Bad As The Downloaders

I’ve just realised that the updating of my Richard Buckner collection hasn’t benefited this wonderful singer-songwriter at all. I bought the first three albums retail before my financial straights but all my recent purchases have been through Amazon marketplace and therefore second-hand. So I can sit in utter amazement at the man’s voice and astonishing songwriting but I haven’t paid him a penny for it.

I’ve not downloaded anything illegally but even so I am surely as guilty as the illegal downloaders. I just wish he had some t-shirts available on his website (currently being re-jigged) so that I could show my appreciation. I’m killing music…
