Maybe old rocker Neil Young overestimated his worth, maybe he got what he wanted, but what we’ve learned is that comedian and podcaster Joe Rogan is worth more to Spotify than the old catalog of a leftist musician who doesn’t release meaningful music. for years .
Young gave the company an ultimatum, saying he wanted his music withdrawn from the audio company if they didn’t remove Joe Rogan and his content from the service during his Covid discussions.
The young Canadian who sang “keep rocking in the free world” apparently doesn’t care about open discussions.
Eventually, the Swedish company preferred Rogan to Young. Most likely because of the money his podcast makes to them and probably because, like many people in the US, they dislike people telling them what to do.
