Pink Floyd
Pink Floyd stars Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason have taken aim at bosses behind online radio service Pandora, accusing them of attempting to trick artists into supporting their call for reduced royalties.

The ageing rockers have come together to write an op-ed piece for USA Today to criticise music company executives for lobbying lawmakers in the U.S. Congress to pass the Internet Radio Fairness Act, which would potentially reduce royalty payments to songwriters and performers by as much as 85 per cent.

A previous attempt to push for the bill failed last year (12) after 125 ar...
