Madman Across the Water

Elton John would like to do away with the Internet.

He laments, as do I, that people no longer get together to make music, but do so now mostly alone, sequestered in their little digital studios. He’s quite right about that part; music has a strongly social component, and good things happen when people play together, and usually don’t when they don’t. But close down the Internet? Dream on. As Tony Soprano said, “you can’t put the shit back in the donkey.”

Anyway, even if he did manage to get the Internet shut down, he’d be pilloried in the blogosphere.
