I was very disturbed by a Facebook posting by my nephew, who is in a local band here in Louisville which read:

"ANYONE READING THIS, WITH A NEW BAND, DO NOT PLAY ANY SHOWS THAT ARE PUT ON BY GORILLA PRODUCTIONS. THEY WILL OFFER YOU ALL KINDS OF STUFF AND NEVER PAY OFF, BASICALLY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF YOUR IGNORANCE OF THEM AND USING YOU AND YOUR BAND! THEY ARE SCAMMERS AND CRIMINALS. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE THEM THE TIME OF DAY!!!"

It really sucks that a production company would take advantage of hard-working musicians!

It's just like my friends in a band in California called "Futile Attempt". They were doing well in Europe a few years ago, opening for such major acts as Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie and Testament. Then they come to America and their manager rips them off and leaves them for dead! What the fuck?!!!

They're doing much better now though and still rockin' despite the hardships!

It just burns my ass to no end to see good people being taken advantage of by people they're supposed to be able to trust.!

Sorry about the rant, folks, but I really had to vent!

As long as their have been people with talent, there have been people waiting in line to rip them off. They should always have a professional to look over the contents of any contract. It sucks but it is not anything new. Anything that someone promises, get it in writing.

They are out there. I'm a member of a site that people are able to post for things they want or want to give away. Well, everyonce in a while you get someone posting something too good to be true. You get an auto response and it's total SPAM directing you elsewhere. Sucks, they are out there....scamming any way possible.

Yeah, they are out there. It is just more pervasive no with the Internet. The music and movie biz has always been dicey.
