More artists are abandoning Spotify due to Joe Rogan controversy

As NPR reports, this time it was Neil Young’s former bandmates – David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash – who asked their respective labels to remove their songs from Spotify.

“In solidarity with their bandmate, Neil Young, and in support of stopping harmful misinformation about COVID, they have decided to remove their records from the streaming platform including the recordings of CSNY, CSN, and CN, as well as Crosby’s and Stills’ solo projects” says the statement.

The statement also states that the three musicians agree with Neil Young, stating that “there is dangerous misinformation being transmitted on Joe Rogan’s podcast on Spotify”.

“While we always value alternate points of view, knowingly spreading disinformation during this global pandemic has deadly consequences. Until real action is taken to show that a concern for humanity must be balanced with commerce, we don’t want our music — or the music we made together — to be on the same platform,” the statement says.
