I heard all the real revenue comes from live concerts. This is true. um... not really! most tours make little or no money, their value is publicising the band and the music. i've been on tours that didn't break even. one think that a lot of people don't seem to understand is that being a musician i...

i think it's ok to express your opinion in that way, as long as you accept that it's a subjective view and not a universal truth. having said that, it's a bit unfair to label someone a bad artist, no matter how rubbish you think they are. having said that , i think it's something that a lot of us do...
