I'd never heard anything on that. I didn't listen to much of it, but I'm going to stop trashing this album now:
That is pretty amazing, actually, and if anything it shows that the music business was a totally different beast back then. All the bands out there who have commercial success that Lou could only have dreamed of (and he was popular, don't get me wrong!), only to have to quit and go get a real job because they aren't making any money.
