ADTR, Victory Development: John Janick Was Paid $450K as "Band...

Posted by - 05:14 PM on 11/07/13
PropertyOfZack is reporting on a new A Day To Remember and Victory Records case development that alleges the band paid John Janick (at the time of Fueled By Ramen) a sum of $450,000 over a period of four years as a manager to the band. However, the court has ruled that Janick was not acting as a manager and that means a variety of things for the case, including that Janick can now be deposed. You can read a rundown of the case here and view the latest document (sent in by Tony of Victory Records) here.

If the band themselves were the ones to pay him, why the hell does it matter?

did i miss something? ADTR was that big that they could afford to pay a "manager/consultant/whatever the fuck it was" 450K over 4 years? do they even have a gold record or anything?

not being a dick. legit asking how they could have paid all that money.

450K is not a ton of money over 4 years between merch sales, tour guarantees, etc etc. ADTR have been a very big band since the release of homesick

wow. pretty shocked. i don't folow them much so didn't know the extent of it.

what other bands would you compare them to in the "scene" in terms of popularity? TBS, STD, Brand New? Bigger, smaller?

I'm confused as to what any of this means. Is this bad for them?
