My god.......... His mother will be selling his belongings on ebay next!
I could have sworn this was released last or earlier this year :/
came out pretty recently. his mother loves the cash.
He's a great musician, and pretty palatable for the masses.
estate now and seems to be cashing in at every possible stage rehashing compilations. How about releasing some live recordings we havent heard? Grrr
I certainly won't be rolling in my grave if my mum decides to sell my songs and make some cash out of them.
In fact, if people want to listen to my music when I'm dead (or when I'm alive, for that matter), then I'll be pretty chuffed.
Why is it that people assume it's a callous and horrible thing to do to release the music you spent years crafting, just because you're dead?
Was he close to his mum? If so, then he'd probably be happy his songs could provide her with a decent life, no?
also the point is this material has been released a hundred times
That's not something that would annoy him, surely?
I don't understand this weird hatred for Best Of albums. When big bands release best of albums that I've already got all the tracklisting of, I don't buy it.
If I don't know much about a band or act, then I generally think a best of is a pretty good place to start.
And if the money's going to his mum, then fair enough!? It's not like it's some long-lost second cousin of his first girlfriend's mate, is it?!
It's his fricking mum!
