Larry King: The music industry turned on it’s head in recent years, what do you make of the rise of streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music, TIDAL?

Sheila E.: Basically, it’s like paying nine dollars and 99 cents for a gazillion songs, we get nothing. So, to me it’s kind of like stealing. I don’t like it, I don’t appreciate it. Again, it’s helping collapse this industry. You know, I don’t know any other industry that just gives away. You know, only if we would like to. It’s like going to you, hey Larry can I borrow your car for a minute, give me the keys and I never come back with it. It’s the same thing.
