    I wonder if maybe it wasn't part of the stream and they tacked it on after? I hope. But then why isn't it the last song? ...sigh. Questions, no answers.

    Oops. I made my post before I read this. Yeah you're probably right.

    Lets not forget they signed bands to stupid deals and control so much of the bands saleable product that they pretty much control which bands are successful.

    (disclaimer: maybe it's not true for all labels, but lets face it labels aren't charities they are there to make the owners rich)

    Most definitely. If it wasn’t true bands wouldn’t be having to start their own.

    It's an interesting premise. That label rips me off and owns everything I create, but they sell everything I create and more make me popular and rich. However once I get rich enough I decide to own my own creations, but I still require the label to sell everything because I can only write the music they can sell it. Now I'm rich off the money the label gave me and I'll tell those coming after me that labels screwed me over until I found the right one, got rich and made my own. The label knows this is true but accepts less of a deal because less is better than none, but the label still needs to pay for their expensive buildings and CEO's. How do they do this? By signing more bands. Which is good, expect the deals have to be harsher to make the money they are used to.

    So from that round about circle I'll still blame the labels, but I'm also now blaming the bands that created their own labels. :)

    (damn that's a hell of a waffle for a Saturday morning pre-coffee!!)

    Hahaha. Well that's some write up. I'm not sure I 100% agree. But I also can't find fault with it! :p:)
    Screw'em all!

    Wait until tomorrow when I get around to blaming everyone but me!!

    At the end of the day though everything is a business and while they might not all go into business wanting to take over the world no one goes into business to make enough to live on the poverty line.

    Well if you call in your absence and I end up being the only one here that's not fair because we already established that I'm not to blame :p

    Well it's today here now, so you're arrived and left that means you can be blamed.

    Hmmm I thought I posted that ^ message at 7:30 this morning but it was still sitting here when I popped in to post this.

    33 years since this was recorded. I still have a VHS copy somewhere.

    Has anyone got The Ultimate Revenge 1 with Venom, Exodus and Slayer?
    Apparently the first one included interviews (the second just live shows), and one of those interviews included Kerry King talking about Tom getting a black eye from Cronos.
