Sure, it might help sales.

But at 72 years old, and his money already made, why not let people find out if they like what he will be leaving behind him, especially if they've never listened before? And why not let them hear the best quality sound they can, and see if it makes a difference to them?

Well, he's recently separated (and perhaps already divorced?) from his wife of many years, sold his pad in Hawaii, and has now bedded down with airhead social justice warrior Daryl Hannah so maybe he actually does need the money. Call me a cynic. 8)

Pretty hard to sell music nowadays. This may be the trend of all but the biggest names.

Good for us and for those that will enter his musical story.
Neil might not to the taste of everyone, which artist is anyway?
But he did push for hq audio 24/96 with his pono.
It might not have worked as much as he wanted, but again there's not too many artist that does that, push the idea of full
audio quality to the users/listeners.
I would do the same in his situation, give to the mass, and yeah if it comes to more $$ then why not.

I saw a recent photo of Hannah. I thought it was Mickey Rourke at first.

Maybe we can leave the uncomplimentary comments about Ms. Hannah out of the conversation. And misogyny generally.
