More Heads September News and Some Live Stuff

Postby cyberyukon on August 11th, 2010, 5:47 am

The Gracious Few, which includes the lead guitarist, drummer and bassist from the band Live, has an album coming out on September 14, 2010, produced by Jerry.

Should be worth checking out.

Speaking of Live, it appears that band's lead singer, Ed Kowalczyk, has been trying to pull something of an end-run/coup d'etat over the band's royalties. End result: No more lead singer.

From Wikipedia:

"In 2005 Kowalczyk presented the other band members with an ultimatum: Either agree that all songs on future Live albums would be credited as written by Ed Kowalczyk or he would leave the band. They chose the former and agreed that Kowalczyk would receive 70% of all royalties for future Live works, with the other three members receiving 10% each. The suit also alleges that a deal was struck for the band to complete another Live album, with $1m paid in advance. Kowalczyk should have received $700,000 and each of the other members $100,000. According to the lawsuit, Kowalczyk and their former manager withheld most of these funds from the band...Kowalczyk's name has been removed from Live's official Facebook page and replaced by a question mark."

Seventy friggin' percent??

Sheesh. With friends like that...
