Muse only made $34 million last year according to Forbes, so you can see that having their music on youtube is hitting them  :)


Muse are in the top-10 best sellers now, they're representing the 0.00000001% of musicians :)

by the way, interesting chart with the richest players of 2014 using Forbes data :

and now ... who the F is this DJ Calvin Harris making 66 millions ???????
this is totally unbelievable, never heard of this guy, he's even got some videos on Youtube with 80+ million plays ??????

we've finally reached the rock bottom if a DJ is making more bucks than established Billboard popstars !
this was unthinkable just a few years ago, what's next ?

let me reiterate the concept, this guy is NOT even playing a musical instrument nor singing a song, what the F is he doing exactly ? can't F ing believe it we've come to this, music is dead.

Just shows how out of touch with modern music you are if you haven't heard of Calvin Harris.  And it isn't always conventional groups that make music, nothing new there, remember Frank Farian?  He was behind Boney M and Milli Vanilli.

indeeed, definitely i'm out of touch ... too many songs coming out, it's impossible to keep track of even just the top sellers.

hahaha Milly Vanilli, excellent scam, their fans fully deserved it ...

by the way, NO difference between Milli Vanilli and David Guetta :

"The Truth about David Guetta"

hahaha ......
only in google cache as the original has been deleted ?

and same for Tiesto using another "ghost producer" for many years ....there's an interview with him on Beatport and to top of it off he tried to make his own tunes but it was a total fiasco, no matter if the songs were "tiesto style" ... it just shows that without the backing of a famous brand the music in itself is worth nothing.

moral of the story : he's pretty happy doing ghost producing for other DJs now and claiming to make very good money too ... !

the music industry is rotten to the core and the more they throw buckets of sh-it in the face of their fans the more these idiot fans are happy and ask for more ??
