I just heard this story from a pal and wondered if it was a common occurrence in the evil music industry.
A band from near my hometown supported Oasis on their UK arena tour, maybe a year or two before they broke up if I remember rightly. Apparently team Gallagher made them sign some sort of contract that meant that any PRS payments from the gigs would go to straight to Oasis, so they’d get paid one flat fee but wouldn’t be able to claim any live royalties. Is this a normal thing or did the poor boys get bumped? Curious as to how these things work.
