Huey Lewis, of Huey Lewis and the News, is tired of recorded music at sporting events. In a seemingly out-of-nowhere blog post on his website, Lewis argues that "the fairly recent (in historical terms) proliferation of the pre-recorded stuff has begun to seriously degrade the experience of going to a ballgame."
Among Lewis's reasons for implementing a ban on the (cost-effective) alternative to a live music:
-- It doesn't sound good.
-- Live music can be a "boon to the local culture."
-- Overplayed anthems annoy everyone.
"I'm a big fan of live organists," he writes. "The worst live organist is better than the best pre-recorded music."
Lewis is currently touring and celebrating the 30th anniversary for the band's "Sports" album.
