then they have to pay out a road crew, accountant, booking agent, tour manager, road manager, lawyer, and probably another couple of people.. that money goes fast.


oh yeah... no way they're making a ton of money on their cd sales... company recoups so much from those sales...

I'd be interested to read the briefs in this case. Just because this guy discovered them, doesn't entitle him to $16 million.
