Five Finger Death Punch's Jason Hook: "YouTube has created an immediate delivery for people to hear stuff"
Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Jason Hook and drummer Jeremy Spencer were recently interviewed by Q103, you can read some excerpts below.
About if he thinks YouTube has played a role in the decline in music sales over the past decade, Hook said: "I think that YouTube represents a place where people can go, 'Oh, remember that song', whatever it is, and then they just type it into… Where do they go… What is the fastest delivery source? So, yes, in that respect, YouTube has created an immediate delivery for people to hear stuff."
He continued: "Instead of getting all bummed out about it, I think we're just taking it for what it is. And if that's the state of the industry right now, so be it. We're still gonna plow forward and do what we do."
