No one has changed the way we as a culture consume music quite like Steve Jobs. Whether you loved him or hated him, this much is undeniably true.

When news of Jobs' death made its way online, it took no time at all for everyone's Twitter and Facebook feeds to be clogged with messages of condolences and remembrance for the beloved public figuree. Members of the music community that Jobs so helped to revolutionize were among those paying their respects, and we've compiled a brief list of some of those who spoke out about the late Apple co-founder.

Coldplay: "We are so sad to hear about the passing of Steve Jobs. In all of our encounters with him he was such a lovely man, and always so humble about his incredible talents. Like all of the people he knew, and the millions of others he didn't, we will miss him."

Nikki Sixx: "RIP Steve Jobs. Steve was of his era what Thomas Edison was to the beginning of the 20th century. You made all our lives a better place."
