xx Why does Genesis have NO presence on youtube?
« Thread started on: Sep 30th, 2016, 11:18pm »

Genesis is one of the only bands left that doesn't have a VEVO channel on youtube and they literally don't have ANY of their music videos on there. I'm sick of having to find shit quality copies of their videos off of Dailymotion. Is there a legal reason why Genesis can't upload official copies of their own videos?

Because their management doesn't care about the fans?

I'd guess the fact they are no longer an operating band is a lot to do with it. Probably true of other bands who DO have a presence, but it may well be a management decision based on that fact.

There's official videos up through EMI, though there are locations that can't view them. Probably more up to record companies and obtaining publishing rights as I've seen other EMI videos that can't be played on this side of the pond either. Vevo is through Sony Music Entertainment, which is a different company. EMI is connected with Universal Music Group, which UMG also publishes the music in audio format on YouTube, and in video format with country restrictions. It's probably due to people downloading the videos from YouTube to get the audio from the songs without paying for the albums/songs.

You see, this silly geoblocking shittyshatty really gets on my nerves. CDs and vinyls don't have country codes.

I wonder if it isn't because of someone in the band not being interested.

Specifically, Mike.

For a long time there was no online presence or downloadable content from Mike and the Mechanics, and he seems very protective about licensing any M+M music, to the point that it helped cause the falling out with Paul Carrack when he wanted to license several Mechanics songs for his greatest hits album and Mike wouldn't allow him to use The Living Years.

I wonder if those same feelings are at play with Genesis too, even if it's a bit more limited. While he isn't the only one deciding these kinds of things I get the feeling that a lot of band decisions are often left up to the person that's the most passionate about something.

The old EMI videos have recently been moved to a new GenesisVEVO channel. I wonder if it'll ever be updated...

I don't necessarily have to have them all in Blu-ray or anything. But I do have all the videos myself, included in all the boxsets. Quite convenient that they're included on each of the albums. Picture quality isn't HD, but at least they're in surround sound!
