Curation isn’t the only thing the record companies did. They were gatekeepers that strictly regulated who had access to your ears. And it sucked.
Iovine is a relic of that era. The new order means ANYONE can be a content creator – and ANYONE can be a curator. Only sheep will allow the record companies to dictate what they listen to these days.
Having said that, the success of the crappy Beats headphones shows there are a lot of sheep out there. What Iovine really excels at is marketing. Period.
