I made sure that my band could never do anything like that to me.
I keep the band fund, we practice at my place, we use my trailer, I copyrighted the music under my name even though Ive only wrote 25-30% of the music, I control the myspace & facebook, our photographer works for free because of me, I book all the shows and am on first name basis with the venues.
If they fire me Ill ruin their musical career.


THAT A BOY!
that's why they call it the MUSIC BUSINESS.
when you treat it like a game, you get played.

and as quickly as possible, even if they suck, and get a gig under the original band name.  make sure it's advertised and copy the ad for the press kit.  make a flyer and mail it to yourself and two other addresses and keep it - UNOPENED - with the postmark date intact.  this establishes a time-line for the judge (if it gets that far) to side with the one with the best paper trail.

That is the SMARTEST THING I have ever seen posted here on the Ozzboard EVER!!! Truly ingenious...
And i bet that would work. Its stuff like that which can seal up a grey area. If I was that guy I`d do that NOW!
Your boss is a lucky guy.....

Dude did you suck? Or maybe your band had other things in mind. Maybe a contract with a company and didnt want you to know! Either way sorry dude. Their loss I guess?
I'm the guy your mom warned ya bout!

No i did not suck. I did everything in that band. EVERYTHING. Im the reason it even exists. And Im more talented than the one who fired me (thats what everyone tells me and him even before I was fired). Its his ego.
