Default Gord and the internet

Does anyone think Gord will ever see the potential in the internet? For instance, if he had a few songs rattling around in his brain that he'd like to put on tape, or disc or whatever the digital equivalent is these days, could ANYONE get thru to him that he could put it on a website, charge for a download, and achieve two things: 1) get some sort of artistic satisfaction of getting one of his creations out and 2) get paid for it. Maybe this is a subject for his post-touring days. I can't believe he can just "turn if off". Maybe when he's done tourning, he'll discover the potential of the internet. Then again, he might just want to die someday onstage.

I don't imagine IMHO that he would ever do that for the simple reason that he would then lose control over what would be done with it-changes to the music/lyrics, use in videos-all kinds of things he would have no say in.

And he, possibly at this stage in life doesn't want the chaos and headaches of trying to keep track of it all and possibly have to fight any legal battles.

just my thoughts of course..

but is sure would be nice....

That's all very true. But remember, if you dispense your music officically over the internet, all your copyright privileges remain intact. It would still be copyright Moose Music or whatever publishing company he's with. If the Beatles can handle downloads via itunes, it would work for Gord. But, he may not give a rat's ass about it.

As I recall (correct me if I am wrong, Char!) Gord isn't really into the Internet, in general. I doubt he spends much time online, except for a little private e-mail, and maybe one or two things that may be necessary, these days.

He has stated that he doesn't use a computer but his kids do.
