These stats do not line up with what is qouted in here at all.
I hear there is a rabbit that delivers painted eggs on Easter too.
Right, but it must be noted that George’s later songs were not included. He was smart enough to start his own publishing company.I believe the story is that Paul told MJ that the real money was in publishing, shortly after that convo the Beatles catalog came up for sale and MJ was the high bidder.
Could have even been more profitable with RS as well, we really don't know. Also, we know gross...but how much of this is determined by ticket pricing...length of tours...etc.? As far a "more profitable"...unless you are doing the books you don't really know that either. You could very well be right, but I'll stand by my opinion on this.It’s strange that his absence hasn’t had any effect on the touring/attendance side, right? I’d think anyone but him was disposable, but it turns out he is, too.
BJ tours have only increased in profits since they split.
Speaking of, seeing how it's been almost 11 years since MJ's death, does anybody know who owns The Beatles' catalog yet? Is it still in legal limbo? That has to be an absolute fortune.I'm not saying the catalog is worth more than that of Beatles...but I can't remember the last time I heard the Beatles on the radio. Honestly, I bet it's been 15 years. And comparisons to McCartney are silly as he made most of his money buying the rights to other people's songs.
It is too bad...but frankly would you expect Jon to say "we aren't nearly the band we were when Ritchie was in and co-writing all those hit songs with me...." Ego and money...ego and money...Too bad Jon doesn't think so...
“This isn’t a band that is dependent on the guitar player like Van Halen or U2 or something,” Bon Jovi told Pollstar. “t was about the songs and it was about me.”
Well, if you consider numbers, we’re as big or bigger than ever,” he said. “You see how they come back again and trust in the change in lineup and the musical direction. … I’m not trying to rewrite ‘You Give Love a Bad Name.’ I think that speaks to me as the leader and primary songwriter, that they trust me as an audience.”
He added: “And that’s a leap of faith for them to take, because they bought into a certain thing that they may have grown up in or grown up with. They have to then trust me, and if it wasn’t worth their time and money, they would move on and keep the memories wherever music fans store them.”
Richie on the otherhand...The guitarist suggested last year that he’d been unhappy with the way the group was run for decades: “I thought we should have made more strides to become a band. It was going towards Jon being the front-guy and nothing else.”

I believe he took out a loan on them years before he died. Not sure if he ever paid it off. Bank of America, IIRC?Speaking of, seeing how it's been almost 11 years since MJ's death, does anybody know who owns The Beatles' catalog yet? Is it still in legal limbo? That has to be an absolute fortune.
Yeah, they are one of the few bands from my youth that I enjoyed but haven't seen live. I saw Richie do a solo thing 20 some years ago but thats been it. I'd probably give em a go if he was in the band, but I'm not paying what they are asking for the current group. I'd rather watch Phil be Phil on youtube and such, as opposed to just filling in the blanks with JBJ.It is too bad...but frankly would you expect Jon to say "we aren't nearly the band we were when Ritchie was in and co-writing all those hit songs with me...." Ego and money...ego and money...
I don't think he's lying:
