Neil Young says he’ll leave Spotify over Joe Rogan

If you go to Neil Youngs website you wont find this letter, which he posted and then deleted.  But you know how the internet be. Nothing really comes down.  Cyberspace is forever.

Young said in the letter that unless Spotify gets rid of Joe Rogans podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” he’ll pull all of his music from the streamer.

Reason being, of course, is because Joe Rogan has become notorious for introducing and spreading misinformation about Covid.  Although I don’t know if that’s a reason for sensorship.

“Spotify has a responsibility to mitigate the spread of misinformation on its platform, though the company presently has no misinformation policy,’ he wrote, according to numerous media reports. “I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform … They can have Rogan or Young. Not both.”

Young, who survived polio as a child, continued, “I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them. Please act on this immediately today and keep me informed of the time schedule.”

Rogan signed a $100 million deal with Spotify in 2020, giving them exclusive rights to The Joe Rogan Experience. So no.  They’re not likely letting him go.
