As many musicians and music industry executives are still worried about Internet piracy, longtime artist Rob Zombie isn't overly concerned about the problem. Just a few years ago, Zombie mentioned how piracy could hurt indie bands, not the major artists, but admits he feels "freed" by the current state of the music industry.

"I don't care about any of that stuff," Zombie recently said. "In fact, in a funny sort of way the fact that nobody buys records doesn't bother me. In fact, I feel like it's freed me. I never did anything to sell records, per se, but when you take that pressure away 100 percent, I swear to God you get more creative because it doesn't matter anymore."

 

Instead, Zombie has a more glass half-full approach: "That's really been the case, I'm happy to give it away for free. I don't care. I just want to make it, play it, get crazy with it. I hear a lot of musicians crying about it but for me, it's re-energized us."
