Artists are for the art, managers are for the money.

You know that deal where Jimmy Page, Chris Squire & Alan White were going to form a band called XYZ (for eX Yes & Zeppelin) but fell apart because Robert Plant was still broken up over the death of John Bonham?

The other factor would have been who manages such a band...Peter Grant or Brian Lane? 2 such massive egos obviously couldn't co-exist. Still, Grant must go down as the greatest manager of all time getting Zep a 90%-10% cut with promoters for concert money. Even the Stones had to fight to the bone for 80%-20% allegedly.
