  Starving Rock Stars and Napster
Music

The British anti-Napster campaign, based on the idea that the music-trading program is robbing hardworking music-workers, is being headed up by hardscrabble geezer Paul McCartney (the richest rock star in Britain with a $707 million fortune) and threadbare codger Elton John (England's 2nd richest rock star with $221 million who recently admitted in court that he spends $2 million a month on living expenses). Makes me feel terrible about downloading Beatles bootlegs, let me tell you....

You are right. Rich people deserve to get robbed. I mean, their creativeness and hard work aside, they should entertain the world for free. McCartney should earn his living working at Walmart and do that music thing on the side for free. On the other hand, maybe the most influential rocker of the last 100 years deserve big bank.
