Neil Young Urges Spotify in Regard of Joe Rogan

Neil Young wrote an open letter to Spotify’s podcast channel from Joe Rogan, spreading misinformation about the coronavirus and vaccines. The contents of the letter ask Spotify to choose between him and Joe, which is an act of Neil rejecting Spotify’s decision in Joe’s statement that could mislead the general public.

A second statement from Young was posted to his personal website calling Spotify “home of misinformation against life-threatening Covid.” He also added, “Lies are sold for money.” His rebuke of Rogan, a comedian and actor who has become Spotify’s most popular podcast host, sometimes spoke at length with controversial figures such as Dr. Robert Malone, an immunologist who promotes “some lies about the Covid-19 vaccine”.

Young’s most famous songs, such as “Heart of Gold,” “Harvest Moon” and “Old Man,” have been a staple of radio for decades, and have attracted hundreds of millions of streams on Spotify. On Wednesday, Young said that Spotify represents 60 percent of its music streams worldwide. Young’s music is expected to be completely removed from Spotify within hours of the statement coming out. News that the service was deleting his songs was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.
