Doyle Blasts “Scumbags” That Illegally Download Music, Says He Doesn’t Like Doing Meet & Greets

During a recent interview with The Liquid Conversations, Doyle (Misfits) was asked about the changing music industry and the ways in which he has learned to adapt to it. While discussing that, the guitarist blasted people that illegally download music, while also blaming them for him having to do things like meet and greets, which he hates.

Here’s an exchange from The Liquid Conversations:

Over the years, how has the industry changed and how you had to adapt to it?

“The thing that sucks the most about it is that everybody steals music. You spend thousands and thousands of dollars to make a record and all of these scumbags are just stealing it.

And then they want more, and then you’re a dick because you’re doing a meet ‘n’ greet for 50 fucking bucks to make up for it, which you don’t want to do. You think I want to meet all these fucking people? I don’t.

When I’m done, I just want to take a shower and go to bed. I just worked, so…”

Looking at that aspect, you feel that people, the fans, put some undue pressure on you because of something like that, because you charge $50 for a meet ‘n’ greet?

“They can kiss my ass. You want to steal shit? If I was making motorcycles and they came and took one, would that be a crime? Why can’t we punish people for stealing songs? There should be a $10,000 fine for that.”

The industry, certain aspects of it protect you, but a lot of it doesn’t. It’s weird because you put so much time and effort into it, and it’s almost like people are literally stealing from you like you said.

“Yeah, they should really fucking fix that shit. Shut the internet down for a day and fix it.”

The guitarist also discussed Spotify and streaming services:

“You make nothing, it’s $9 a month, and you can listen to a song 10,000 times if you want. If there’s enough time in that month to listen to it 10,000 times, I don’t know… I can’t do the math, but how much do you think the bands get? It’s like a hundredth, maybe a thousandth of a penny you get. My girlfriend [Arch Enemy‘s Alissa White-Gluz] went to their office, said that shit was insane. I would’ve went fucking mental, I would’ve started breaking everything.”

He also defended Metallica’s decision to go after Napster years back:

“Lars Ulrich was right when he sued fucking Napster. And everybody thought he was a dick. He didn’t do it for him. He’s got the fucking money. He did it for fucking jerkoffs like me.”
