Fred,

You just wrote you a brand new set of matches, yeah....

Since you used portions of "These Boots Are Made For Walkin" and matched its lyrics to your cleverly worded retorts to Nancy's points...maybe you're elgible for a songwriter's credit with Lee Hazelwood and therefore eligible for that royalty. You could then donate that to the anti-performance royalty battle!

I think the performers need to understand that so many of us got into this business because of our LOVE for music. We WANT to help the artists prosper, we WANT to promote their music. We need to work together, not at cross purposes.

What I'm curious about is this: How many artists have any kind of clause in their current label contracts that provides them any access to funds that might be collected from this proposed performance tax? Or are they just trusting that the music conglomerates will do the right thing? Like they always have? ((wink wink nudge nudge)).
