I've noticed in the past couple of years that whenever a popular musician dies (Dio, Michael Jackson, now Houston), their record label likes to put out a greatest hits collection (there's one for Houston on iTunes now) or an old concert (Dio) or fucking release a bunch of unfinished songs right before they died (MJ?). Honestly, I find this to be an insult. The company is making money off the person's death. That is fucked in the up position. What the hell, man?

I think it would be more accurate to say they're making money off the fickle nature of consumers.

When else are you going to come out with a greatest hits album?


I'm a single father and a multimillionaire.

1. Fuckin' don't. That's a cheap way of making money, you sell-out whore.

2. If you must, then when the and breaks up. As for soloists, I dunno.

Should send Sony Music Entertainment, one of the world's top 4 record companies, a letter explaining your issue with how they're capitalizing off the recent publicity of Houston, despite them owning the rights to her entire catalogue.

Not really, if I want to support a long time artists maybe i don't feel like buying 10+ albums if I only like their biggest hits.

Now, now, just because they legally have the rights, doesn't mean it's ethical, even it is business. Proof that people are cheap and want nothing but money.

I'd like to milk some musicians before they pass away.

Oh no, some record labels are only in it for the money?

Who would have thunk.
