What's the alternative? You can't expect the record buying public at large to suddenly go back to buying CDs in huge numbers. It's just not going to happen. I agree that Spotify doesn't reimburse the artists nearly enough, but they do pay a little bit, and more importantly, they actually do a good job at recommending artists based on your listening habits, so somebody who listens to Cinderella for old time's sake would suddenly learn that Tom Keifer has a solo record out. But by not putting his record on Spotify, Tom gains absolutely nothing. Other than the few thousand die-hards, nobody will ever know that such a record exists. I think whatever puts your name and music out there is a good thing and will help generate income, either through record sales and/or concert tickets.
