I was writing about the labels and the publishers meeting with newly elected President Trump on Copyright issues under the pretense of helping artists.
We all know that when these organizations meet with government officials it’s for their benefit only and maybe some small change to the artists to keep em quiet.
And based on how all of these investment houses are buying the rights to songs from artists, expect to see a new player in the meetings with government over copyright and its terms.

The site was still young and new and I had a few posts in the month of January but none during this period.
But… I’ll cover a bit of history.
Jason Newsted flirted as a band called Newsted and released the underrated “Metal” EP. Interest was high, they played smaller venues and they sold out on the physical CDs for “Metal”.
The plan was for three EPs.
But that got canned and the same year they also released the album “Heavy Metal Music”.
The band was costing Newsted money. He was the investor for the tours and what not. And it was on a tour of Australia that Newsted ended the band for personal reasons.
And Black Veil Brides released the excellent album “Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones” which gave rise to their biggest song. “In The End” currently stands at 99.299 million streams on Spotify.
