One of the great things about browsing the web for your favourite band is finding the obsessive fan sites, labours of love from the bedrooms of the world. I know. I used to do one.
That could come to an end if Google has anything to do with it. They are introducing a music search feature prominently above the main search results. When a user enters a music-related search, the resulting search returns information about the artist, a few albums, a picture. A link to "more results" leads to user reviews, song titles and a choice of online retailers where the music can be purchased.
It all sounds fairly informative when looking for a new act, but as fan, wouldn’t you just want the search results?
