How's about ???

None of us are on the road with the band to know what's behind it all. I know from bands I've been in that its no fun to drag a problem around with you, all sorts of frustration and jealousies can fester and maybe that's got a lot more to do with it than some cold, hard business decision, which probably had to be made as a last resort.

The fact the band has been reported playing 3 hour, fun-filled sets again speaks volumes to me, maybe Richie isn't upto it anymore, despite his past input ? With the amount of money being paid, the question of "is he actually earning it these days" is bound to have arisen, and Jon being the experienced manager that he obviously is, has made a very brave decision.

I have no problem with a band being managed like a corporation (most have in the past, except the label was the boardroom, not the tour bus). Good for Jon if he has the time and astuteness to do that - simply look at all the whingers who complain they lost money from so many here call "classic albums." I don't buy into the sad rhetoric that its only art if you're on skid row.
