    How many artists has Ray D. managed over the years? I know he's done Van Halen, Extreme, Rush and King's X. Anybody know of any other artist he's worked with/destroyed?

    Not that I am aware of, but I would assume the road is littered with the bloated carcasses of bands that Mr. Danniels has managed.

    Please do not refer to Danniels as "Mister." He/It does not deserve the respect, or ANY respect for that matter!

    I know his time with both King's X and Extreme were pretty short. I think with King's X he might have only been with then for the "Ear Candy" album but I might be wrong. I'll have to check some of their liner notes.

    I don't think there's any proof that RD ever did anything wrong to Rush.
    He kind of built that band's career from the start and made them quite succesful.

    I've never heard anything which would contradict that.

    I've heard that Queensryche has been having some communication problems. Maybe Ray is to blame for their spiral downward also.

    I was incorrect about Ray's association with King's X. He Was with them for two albums Dogman and Ear Candy. Does anyone know when Van Halen dumped him?

    I wouldnt be suprised if Daniels still has a legal hold on VH and maybe this is the reason for the ongoing silence...

    Fuck Off Ray Daniels

    He managed the band 'Talk Show'.

    For those that don't know, this was Stone Temple Pilots with a different singer, Dave Coutts. Weiland put out 12 Bar Blues, and the rest of the band had been stockpiling material for when the inevitable happened--Scott went to rehab or jail for a long time.

    Anyways, Howard Stern made a comment once on his show when STP were the guests after No. 4 came out. It was about how Ray Daniels just wanted to take great bands and put shitty singers in after he found out Talk Show was also managed by Ray Daniels.

    Of course, I don't think either singer (Dave Coutts or Gary Cherone) is shitty by a long shot, but they just weren't good fits in their respective new bands.
