    Tommy Lee Says Recording Albums Is Pointless Now

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee says that that there’s no point recording albums anymore. In an interview with Noisecreep, the drummer said that he’s probably made his last album and thinks it’s better to stick to singles or EPs. He said, “As far as new music goes, and people say it all the time, ‘When are you guys gonna make a new record, dude?’ It’s like, ‘Really, why?’ No one buys them anyway anymore. And I’m not sure what the reason is. To tell you the truth, I think the days of making a record, for me personally, are over…..

    I am not surprised since people usually just want a song or two and can find them all over the internet.

    Not a bad idea anyways. Most don't have the attention span to go through a whole album anyways. Why not drop singles every now and then. It will keep you current too, your name starts fading release another track instead of needing a whole album. Also, with this route, you could make every song have a video which I think is a part of the music business getting bigger and bigger, cinematography in relationship to music. With singles there is no rush, you can make them all extremely high quality, you can afford to use/buy/rent better gear to put it all together... I like it.

    And you could always collect the singles later to a collection with possible remixes.

    Sales, ascap, various ways.

    I guess it would probably be a good idea to release an album so you have something to tour with, and then keep releasing singles to keep thriving.

    Maybe, becuase the albums out now are awful, if they focus on making an album that flows from beginning to end, they can drop hot albums again, Idk, just my opinion.

    Some (Radiohead, to name one) blame iTunes' and iPod's "random" function for killing the concept album. What's the point of putting songs purposely in order if the listener is gonna get a track here and there, out of context?

    I strongly believe many people don't have a strong enough attention span to listen to an album in it's entirety.
