3036139, artists selling they catalogs. $$ seem high/low/just right?
Posted by FunkyBoss, Mon Jan-03-22 06:30 PM
I always assumed "rights" and "publishing" had crazy high value to it what with all the beef and bad feelings artists had with not owning they rights, getting jerked for they publishing and whatnot. but these big name rock stars selling they music and I see the money attached and it doesn't seem that much to me.

Springsteen $500 million
Bob Dylan 300 million
Neil YOUNG 150 Million for half
Bowie 250 million

when it says catalog sold I'm thinking they no longer have any control over their own music. Do i got that wrong?
