I would also like to add that being staunch is very admirable, but I have had to cope with first day releases totally ripped and distributed on every rapidshare site on the net before they make any money on legitimate sites. It is just the way it is, and the producers must make their money by live gigs. Welcome to 2012, and yes, I run a record company too.
Well that's a piracy issue, not a label issue. But by not playing 100% by the former rules it's harder to complain about the pirate element!!
Hhah on being Daltry or Macca. I think they have made EMI and themselves rather more than I.
