    You would think the people who are the most important element in the music business, THE MUSICIANS would make the most money. Not these middle men/ executives. When will the musicians stand up for their rights and DO SOMETHING in order to get their FAIR SHARE of the revenues? But they are all too busy recording new songs for Spotify and Youtube, LOL!!
