Success

Quote of a few days ago:
After their latest record, "Glee: The Music -- Journey to Regionals" landed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in June, star Mark Salling said he'd seen "not a dime" of royalty payments from label Sony Music.

Co-star Corey Montieth told Toby Knapp's DC 99.5 radio show: "I got 400 bucks from it going No. 1. But you know what, that's OK, because if I'm patient, and if this thing does really well, maybe I'll see another 400 bucks."

We're lucky when our big corporations don't decide to kill us.

The music industry really needs to be dismantled- they've been scamming artists for too damn long.

depends who you're stealing it from.

I remember a Replacements tour when they had a shirt with $23 dollars on it after they'd signed up to Warner-Elektra-Atlantic and their tour merch pricing was removed from their control.

They they they THEY!
