The Who guitarist Pete Townshend has urged Apple's iTunes to use its power to help new bands instead of "bleeding" artists like a "digital vampire".
Townshend made the comments in BBC 6 Music's inaugural John Peel Lecture, named in honour of the legendary DJ.
He also argued against unauthorised file-sharing, saying the internet was "destroying copyright as we know it".
