Some lawyer can always advise a band to throw a disclaimer in (hell, they probably bill you with that sort of thing), but...White Sister? Placed at the top of the interview instead of oh-so-tiny fine print at the very end? Maybe if it were Britney Spears or someone with a reasonably high profile.

Self-delusion in rock bands amuses me...it must be comforting to think that people are hanging on your every word. I'm sure it feeds their self-esteem in these lean times.

Well, while we're bashing away at WS....I seem to have remembered something (and BLM & Mark Ashton can correct me if I'm mistaken)...WS were to do an album for Now & Then, but if I remember correctly, they wanted a huge advance of a size basically unheard of in today's AOR scene, and wanted it without showing a single song of demo material to the label. Apparently, they were paranoid about the label taking or leaking the music, and justified not showing anything at all by their fear of it being stolen...they just expected the label to fork over a substantial amount of money blindly. The label is going to steal our music, give me a break. Seems pretty consistent with thinking that people are out to nick their interviews and distribute them the world over. One would think they'd be desperate for the publicity.

And they're probably wondering why they're not on top of the world.

Cheers,
Jack.
