how to make friends and influnce people
if they like he's songs they like his songs but thats as far as the transaction goes really
they certainly didnt help make him rich or famous. or spread the word of prince to new people, to help make him richer and famouser. oh no. i reckon he could cope if his fan base dropped out because he acted like a cunt.
it appears to be the legal team who has the issue about the photo's being 'illegal', because the shots of Prince on the fans' unnoficial websites are not by the contracted photographers it seems (to them) to lay the foundation for litigation...
It's all a load of 'Big Brother' bollocks to be honest, I actually once got asked to leave a White Stripes gig unless I unloaded my roll of film that I was using for my Sixth Form project, of course I wanted to stay so I proceeded to ruin about 15 other unassociated shots unrelated to that gig, Christ I was only 16 at the time! It's not as if I was going to make money out of it bootlegging dodgy pics/posters and shirts using those images. And anyway what about all the dodgy feckers who sell unnoficial merch outside the front doors? Where's their lawsuit!
Can you sue people just because they have a photo of you on their website?
Obviously if its incriminating in some way or a photo they own the rights to and has been used without permission I'd understand, but surely you can't just sue everyone?
and a dick.
left right and center for just trying to take a pic of the squiggle shaped stage! it was outrageous really, though managed to grab a couple of very gash pictures during the lighted mobile waving of 'purple rain', so hah! inyerface! sue my blurry crap phone pics!
I'm a total renagade.
Let's face it, when your seat is closer to outer space than the ground, you can kind of see everything.
and saw him on his last night. Free glowsticks and CDs!
Anyone who mentions Prince from now on is going to get a kicking from me.
