Or.... how a non musician collects royalties on hundreds of songs he didn't write.

If this doesn't make you mad......

There's no upfront money..... Run!

The gatekeepers have always exploited the artists.

So many one-hit-wonders of the past never made a penny on their hit records. Out of their royalties, the labels took inflated recording, distribution, and promotional costs. They assigned 'ghost writers' to share the writing royalties that never wrote a note or lyric, and the demanded the publishing rights as well.

Gallery owners take over half the price a painting sells for.

The theater makes a mint, while the ballet troupe makes so little they can't hire real musicians but go with a recording.

It's because artists love what they do, and generally don't have a lot of business sense. Business people love what they do and they know as much about business theory as the best musicians know about music theory.

But, I love what I do and wouldn't be as happy as the non-musician business person.

How about you?

Pat Donahue wrote a parody to Would You Like To Swing on a Star, called Would You Like to Play the Guitar. One line about a manager was "because he's good at business and he knows your not". Sums it up.

Hopefully the bono fide certificate includes a shiny gold seal. Ya' can't prove you're the best if the certificate doesn't have the gold seal.
