  1. Elvis sold his artists rights in 1973: In March 1973, Elvis and and his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, went to the record company proposing that Elvis get a large lump sum payment in lieu of all his future artist's royalties for ongoing sales of anything he had recorded up to that time. The deal was made. RCA paid $5.4 million, which Elvis and the Colonel split 50-50. That meant Elvis no longer got (EPE today does not get) his artist's royalties for the ongoing sales of any recordings created before the March 1973 deal. However, Elvis did continue (EPE today continues) to get his artist's royalties on sales of recordings created after the March 1973 deal. Totally separate from the ownership of Elvis' recordings is the ownership of the songs themselves. Elvis recorded over 700 songs. Elvis, throug Elvis did not sell his publishing interests. The 1973 deal regarding Elvis' artist's royalties had no effect on his publisher's royalties. Elvis continued to get (EPE still gets) his publisher's royalties on sales of recordings of songs he had publishing interest in, no matter what date they were recorded. Maybe Plants deal was something similar?
  2. What was the real reason Robert split with Phil Johnstone?
  3. I think he cared a little for her so she wasn't just a groupie to pass around. Also, he has an ego...he wants her to only want him.
  4. A guy doesn't want his buddy screwing the girl he is screwing...it's weird.
  5. I never said he did but he does a more than adequate job, in fact, he did really well. He's gotten better over the years. It's more that it is Bonzos son. Period. If you don't understand that than you must not have children.
  6. 100% the right decision. Classy move. After the 02 show they should have reformed for a bit with Jason. His son is the right person, the only person, to take his Dads spot.
  7. I have never heard him say that in fact he said physical graffiti was their best work.
  8. Anyone have insight on what each member did after the show? Did they all attend an after party? What was the mood?
  9. Is it an autobiography or biography? Did he write it or provide the information to the writer?
  10. I've read a few times that Col Tom Parker wanted Peter Grant to manage a UK tour of Elvis. Did Col Parker really ask Grant this and what was Grant's response?
