Rob Dickens, a former Warner Music executive, told BCC News that he thinks music prices should be radically reduced. He thinks that is albums were marked down to $1, sales would explode. If fans wanted a new album, they’d just go buy it.
At a time when some in the industry are worried about fans thinking that music should cost less than their cup of coffee, Dickens thinks that it should cost as much as a double cheeseburger. He thinks that major albums would sell 200 million copies and make up for their lackluster performance as of late. To Dickens, this would also solve the piracy problem.
