Whew. Back to claiming piracy supports drug dealing, terrorists, and pedophiles for the RIAA and MPAA I guess.

Ok, there’s the link to the old story.
Where’s the link about the mistake the author made?


#4

They have been touring Latin America since I can remember. They have a HUGE following there and they’ve known this forever. Maiden concerts are pretty an yearly event in Brazil, for instance.

Yes please. One cannot complain about half-hearted retractions from ‘the enemy’ without oneself being wholehearted.


#6

Curious how this one gets explained. Maybe there was an assumed (not fact checked for accuracy) link between the technique and the band’s bookings.


#7

I never know, am I supposed to call up everyone I told this to in conversation now and make a personal correction?


#8

Oh well, perhaps the incorrect news will make itself. Not like it isn’t a great idea.


#9

The original article cited as the source in the first post has been updated with a correction.
