"You're getting sound in bits. It affects a different place in your brain," he told the Guardian. "When you play it back, you can't feel anything. We're analogue people, not digital." He's also continuing his campaign against music piracy:
"I'm supposed to go to the White House to talk about copyright protection. It's like the gold rush out there. Or a carjacking. There's no boundaries." Because of the problems with piracy, he said he has no plans to record another album.
