Fran Healy: 'I Illegally Download Music'

TRAVIS frontman FRAN HEALY downloads music illegally - and doesn't feel guilty about it.
The rocker often steals music from the internet, but always buys an artist's CD if he likes what he hears.
And now, Healy has even urged fans to illegally download the band's new album Ode To J Smith.
He says, "I download music illegally but I will then go out and buy the album if it meets my standards. I need to have heard three good songs and no s**t before I make a purchase. That's my rule.
"I don't mind if anyone gets our album from the internet for free. I just want people to enjoy the music and have it out there. And I can say that without having to worry about any record company boss going mad because we are the record company."
