Poor Dave

he came off as pretty manipulated that whole time, to me

It's really quite a sad tale, almost a Shakespearian tragedy, like the rise and fall of Romero.

The industry's got some really fucked up priorities, some really greedy sharks, and manages to milk a lot of foolish people. A number of times in the article, I just shook my head at Dave's decisions. And he's one of the more intellectual people in metal.

Re: Indeed

Believe me, my dad, who used to work in the industry and ultimate suffered a lot of financial hardship, because of it, has told me all my life that it was a cartel, and a mean one, at that.

As in he couldn't imagine the mob being that much worse.

And yeah, it seems to me like Dave was pressured and manipulated just so much throughout his career...he should have hired a lawyer on side to give him the straight skinny of all these proposals.

But really, I think Romero's sadder

Mostly because it's...John Romero

Co-found of id, now a laughingstock

very sad

Friends of mine see him at E3 and just laugh. He's a punchline now.

Wow. Everybody got totally screwed.

Fortunately I have an I.Q. way over 90, so I read the whole thing. It's pathertic, I tell you. Aftwer reading that, I still hear one of my friends still admonish me, "never sign to a major label." More proof he was right.
