Bands live and die traveling based on merch sales. Especially if you’re the opener receiving a tiny guarantee per show. You NEED great merch along with a great merch seller each Bob Weir in concert and every show. Someone with the merch table from the time doors available to whenever they close. But, obviously, you will need a group of fans first. Don’t go buying thousands in merch inventory if you’re only bringing 40 people locally.
I m sick and tired of hearing every one of the bs about digital music piracy. Before the internet, artists and music companies alike received just compensation through the sale of records, CDs, whatever physical manifestation was the norm, as well as their share of concert revenue, and royalties from stereo. People everywhere could actually record the music they (or someone) bought and PAID FOR onto cassettes, or later, burn that music to CDs in order that they could tune in to their music in the car, or while they walked or jogged. They even shared their tapes or CDs using friends. No one came after cassette tape or CD manufacturers crying because people were able to make copies of these music collection for their convenience.
‘Beginning in 2018, plays occurring on paid subscription-based services (for example Amazon Music and Apple Music) or on the paid subscription tiers of hybrid paid/ad-supported platforms (such as SoundCloud and Spotify) will be presented more importance in chart calculations compared to those plays on pure ad-supported services (for example YouTube) or around the non-paid tiers of hybrid paid/ad-supported services.’
Wow, you miss the mark again, Paul. What an incredibly na ve person you’re to think until this may be ‘really simple.It’s obvious you haven’t needed to cope with real cash, and you know next to nothing about Tom Petty, his family (including his ex-wife), the legal machinations on both sides, or how things work in general when business disputes arise. Are you seriously suggesting that this case ‘ties inside the courts’? What do you think courts are for, anyway? Are you thinking that some underprivileged pickpocket won’t get his day in the courtroom for this reason It’s not a criminal court case. I smell an entitled millennial, and I think it’s you. How do you find yourself getting it might be? Quit slagging people you recognize nothing about. Shaddup.
Guarantee, if VH-1 updates their Most Shocking Moments In Rock And Roll, hopefully steer clear piss-faced Mark MacGrath as host, this still wouldn t top John Lennon s murder. Not even donut-licking bitch Ariana Grande in Manchester would top Lennon. Just two self-pitying white junkies who wanted attention even when they decided to leave family with children behind. And buying a major house (sellout Chester) so his family would be taken care of . Uhm, yeah Chazzo. Let em live it up in the very house that their patriarch daddy offed himself in. But, I highly doubt there s likely to be inheritance from all of these two, since inheritances don t get doled out in the event the death would have been a suicide.
