Canadian music legend Neil Young is threatening to pull his music from Spotify, a popular music sharing program.
In a since deleted open letter to his management and record label posted to his website , the 78 year old rocker had a strong message for Spotify.
They can have Joe Rogan or Neil Young. Not both.
The 54 year old Rogan signed a $100 million dollar deal with Spotify where his podcast is the most listened to on the platform where he frequently spreads false information about COVID-19.
A group of dozens of doctors and health experts wrote a letter to Spotify earlier this month calling on the platform to remove Rogan for that reason.
By the way, the hall of fame rocker survived polio as a child and the disease has been mostly eliminated due to widespread vaccinations.
