M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold took to Twitter to offer up some advice to up and coming artists -- including some words about the world of NFTs.
Shadows tweeted, "Never let your art become a commodity. Let the creation take you where it’s gonna take you and let the chips fall where they may -- always. Learn where the boundaries are so you can go beyond them. Nothing will take you further away from what’s important than trying to create something that will appease everyone. Analytics show us were we have been, not where we are going. If you want to be a musician, painter, songwriter, novelist -- whatever. Don’t become a commodity. People want to see YOUR creativity -- lead the way."
When a fan asked him if he thought music would shift to NFT's in the future, Shadows replied, "I’m not a believer in just selling music as NFT’s. For the consumer I believe streaming is king. NFT’s are great for community around the band, ticketing, digital events [and] streaming authentication."
