OT: Music catalog sales - follow the $$$

As they always put it in the series, The Wire, follow the money if you want to see what's going on and who's getting what. It's an interesting part of the article that notes the folks selling their catalog fudge how much they actually got. Makes you wonder if the Stones are ready to cash in and for how much.

Why should they sell their music publishing rights? Looks like they have a good deal about their music / audio-visual / archive / merchandise / brand with Universal Music.

And didn't Paul McCartney regret that he sold the Lennon/McCartney song rights to ATV in the early 1970s ?

I guess when you're old and realistically aren't going to live another 20 years, why not? If some company is willing to pay hundreds of millions of dollars it might make sense, especially when touring is now the main source of income (apart from the present covid situation).

Yes, why not. But when you're old and realistically aren't going to live another 20 years - for what do you still need hundreds of millions of dollars then? winking smiley
