I don't know, in that he said there is "several records" in the past. Also, we all hope to be a great success one day, and many great successes have a back story; I know a few tales myself as prob'ly do y'all.

Re: Ethics question...

so he can get the cut he feels like he should. is the band in question actually selling loads of records? i.e. is there even a cut to be had at all? did he write any of the songs? if there was a ton of money involved, the lawyers would be contacting each other; this is just the band having a hatche...
