Roger Daltrey fears AI has the power to “destroy” the music industry.

The Who frontman, 80, who has already said he believes smartphones and TV are “brainwashing” and killing humanity, added he is reassured artificially intelligent bots don’t have our “empathy”.

He told broadcaster Shaun Keaveny, 51, on the ‘Shaun Keaveny’s Daily Grind’ podcast: “The one thing I totally believe AI will never have, and it will be its downfall – it will never have empathy.

“It’s going to destroy the music industry if we’re not careful… music is a different language, and we shouldn’t let AI control that.

“That will always contain empathy, and AI can’t do that. I won’t ever believe, if AI  can ever do empathy, then we are (done for.)”

Roger has previously warned: “Once AI controls the Internet, we’ll be in trouble. People addicted to their iPhones will be brainwashed.”

He was also quoted in the Daily Star saying he is terrified armies of “robots” will rampage through the world like in James Cameron’s ‘Terminator’ films.

The ‘My Generation’ singer added: “There’s enough people looking at their iPhone for eight hours a day, you don’t need machines to kill them.

“You turn them round another way.”

Roger also claimed sitting is the “new cancer” and urged humanity to stop watching TV as he believes it “sucks up your life”.

He added: “I watch people losing their lives down this thing a phone.

“Life isn’t looking down – it’s about looking up.”
