Morrison Disheveled By Current Music Industry

Van Morrison is distraught at how the current music business is running itself. Miffed at how record labels have come to value commerce over live performance, Morrison lamented:

Everything is about commercialism these days, not music. When I started out, commercialism was about making a living. You only put out records because you thought you might get more gigs that way, it might raise your profile. You weren't putting out a record because you were making some statement."

Morrison's latest album is Pay the Devil.
