Okay, kiddos, here it is--from another on-going thread--the BIG question: 

WTF happens to all this incredible music once you've passed on? 

Until now I have made no plans. I don't know anybody who'd want it--except . . . maybe . . . A ProgArchives Library and Resale Store???

Hm.  I have no idea.  My family will never listen to it.  My friends will never listen to it.  Even the people in my band probably won't listen to it.  I suppose I could donate it to the library, give it to my guitar teacher (he might listen to it) or have it buried with me.

I've been thinking to this question recently and I can't think to anybody.

I'd probably leave it to my daughter. Hopefully by then we'll all have chips in our head and she can just upload all the CDs to her brain and not have to worry about storage.

^ And say, don't forget about virtual backup.

After
I die? My mother would sell it all ... except the music on my iCloud ... and buy she a football team ... and a Lear Jet. But if she died, it'd be picking

Before I die? I would sell it all ... except the music on my iCloud (unless it'd be possible when the time comes for me) ... and buy me a football team ... and a Lear Jet.

No, ... I'd donate it to guys like Steven Wilson, iamthemorning, and others so that they can sell it all and get the moneys.

I'm even thinking of selling the whole thing as a collection. It's like my Hot Wheels and hockey card collections they went a long time ago. I mean you grow out of things, move on. I still love music but I find anytime I have time for it is when I'm on the computer. So I just find something on youtube or play a CD.

Let my daughter have her choice of the collection then ship the rest to ROSfest in a big box market 'Free Please Take One' alternatively the local library.

A Passion Play will go in the cd player at the church for the funeral :p

I never gave it much thought ... I still have a good time to figure it out though

I still live in hope that maybe one day this music will be loved by more people
And that my collection could find a nice home from people who really appreciate the music

If PA will still exist, I will leave a note asking someone to post a thread offering it for free to any PA fan who wants to come and pick it up.
But don't kill me yet please.

You could bury it inside a lead container as a sort of time capsule, so that perhaps a civilization thousands of years in the future will discover it and learn how amazing the music on Earth once was (leave a player too with some batteries and instructions in case they are again a primitive culture not knowing electricity, which is highly likely to be the case).

There is a company in England who offer the service of melting your vinyl records and turning them into the coffin in which you are buried.  Unfortunately my Vinyl records all went to a charity shop many years ago.  I suppose when I'm dead my children will sell my CDs on ebay (or whatever the equivalent will be in the future).  I don't think they will interested in listening to any of them.

I'm going to live forever, and bother as many people I can with my weird music collection.
Trust me. I know what I'm doing.
