    ^ I reckon. I don't know if he signed away his royalties when he left Motown in, what, 1980? But as far as Temptations royalties, IDK... but his estate (i.e., his children) probably still gets...

    David tried to sue Motown to get out of the contract he signed in 1963 (he had an independent contract unlike the rest of the Temptations), Motown responded by giving him a solo deal instead.

    When you marry a shady individual (Thomas Chapman) and hire a shadier lawyer (Leonard Baum), you get some bad results. Florence just wanted out but didn't think clearly on how to do it. She agreed to...

    ^ Yeah I was going to edit that Marvin had been around Motown since 1959-1960 or somewhere along there. With the Isleys, it was a veterans vs. rookies thing because even though the Isleys had been...

    Yeah them going to the UK around the late '60s was not factual. They did visit the UK in '64. If I recall, I think their version of "Twist and Shout" was charting at the same time as the Beatles so...

    Nah, the biggest culprit are the labels. Streaming is legal and CAN actually be beneficiary in introducing an artist. The labels just steal the money right in front of the artists. That's why it's...

    I agree. They love to screw artists over. The music industry's full MO has to change because that's just ridiculous.

    That must include a good chunk of Motown artists so Marvin's family (the estate) is gonna see more money from digital royalties... good news. Especially in light of what has happened in recent weeks.

    Hip-hop shows used to be exciting but too many people stand around in the stage yelling for no reason.

    If the lawsuit is setting any precedent, it's for trolls to sue for stupid crap. But this was going on before the lawsuit so this would be laughed out at court, I'm confident.

    ^ Which is why it's a shame David and Eddie never told their sides of the story... it was definitely a biased, one-sided view of the group but I do agree about royalties though.

    I agree. I guess at some point, Berry was rushing the acts and the lead singers were worked more than the background singers, which explains why the girl groups only featured the lead singers and...

    I'm quite surprised Diana doesn't do more Vegas shows. She's proven how she easily can sell out Vegas casinos in the past... and I mean why didn't she do more during the autumn years of her career...
