New Ace record - Is it really him........?????

So, I finally heard the record today. Production is good (maybe a little too good!). Years ago (about 15) I worked on a project Ace was involved in. Probably the laziest "star" Ive ever encountered in terms of actively touring musicians. Clearly, Ace wrote none of the new record, but I do ...

Re: How much do touring musicians actually get paid?

Varies widely..... Assuming you mean "non-key" ie, "hired gun" Some guys on large tours are barely paid and took the gig for exposure/etc. Some club bands pay well if they want to keep the lineup tight. $300-750 on clubs/theatre - again Wide variation Heard a rumor about a singer...

The interest rate is high on this.

Re: How have I missed The Dogs D’Amour all these years??

Quireboys LIVE are awesome, records don't capture "it".

Dogs are incredible and the songwriting is next level. The songs are bit more timeless in that sense.

Spike is killer live.

Re: Buckcherry touring schedule

Not sure what the guarantee is , but guessing at least $20k.

Who knows, it been years since we crossed paths.

Before anyone hates on the band, there is NO WAY they are not making bank by grinding and no one would be away that long unless
it was super profitable.

Re: Live Nation To Stop Taking Merch Fees At Its Clubs

Totally great way for them to crush every other club w/ $1500 nite bonus.

They can sweat it out, drive out other clubs, then get paid 5x in 2 or 3 years.

Ruthless and fans will pay.

Not far off from HOB shows being $100.

Re: No Phil Rudd at Power festival

Phil was 100% and bring in someone last minute means something heavy went down. If you're in ACDC, they have a legal team out the wazoo, so any travel issues can be taken care of easily. Additionally, this gig has been booked for months, so to drop him 30 days out is really lame. No offense to Chris...
