Tony Brummel is nothing but a hot-headed bully that has bitten off more than he can chew. Maybe if half of his staff hadn't quit, then maybe he wouldn't be sueing everyone and their mother. Here's a thought, invest money into your bands and maybe they won't try to move to a label who will actually pay them! It's not rocket science.
Why should he? Tony already has a collection of bands waiting to take over where HH left off. What is happening now is not a huge surprise. The band knew before they ever signed anything with victory, tonys reputation, as well as what might possibly happen to them.
I am not saying the situation is right, but its the truth. Some of my favorite bands and members of bands, are screwed from ever releasing anyhting again because of victory. The fact is, they will admit they were wrong to sign with the label in the begining. It's the price you pay.
