As someone who has invested similar sums - and more, I might add! - in bands over the last few years, I can completely sympathise with you here, Andy. Forget everything else for a second, common courtesy is whatfs missing here.
The standard gag that does the rounds from time to time is how the music biz is great but itfs just a pity about the musicians. Now, as daft as that sounds it is worth remembering that all of the sob stories you hear are from musicians who feel that the world owes them a living. Unlike you, Andy, Majestic Rock is our only source of income. When I and my partner give money to musicians that is money that doesnft go to our young sons on their birthdays. This isnft a hobby for us, itfs deadly serious, a matter of survival. Would I do it again? Yes, of coursec. for the right band.
Donft let this put you off doing anything in the future, mate. Keep reminding yourself theyfre just musicians and they donft know any better.
