Founder and chairman, Interscope Records
Whatever anyone says about Apple, if it wasn't for Steve Jobs there would be no legitimate music online.
Everybody was lost. The record labels were frozen. When he came up with iTunes, it gave us a [legal] way to get the license ready to go online.
Before iTunes, Napster was out of business for two or three years, and then Kazaa and other file sharing started. There was no legitimate way to buy music. I think his impact on music has been extraordinary.
