    Just emailed a friend who I have not spoken with in about 7 months and this was his reply. He had good ties with someone that worked or works for SRO management.

    Here it is...

    Ray Daniels is out, but I do not know who the new management group is.
    Ray's deal actually had him receiving royalties on old VH Albums, but
    issuing the remasters eliminated that........

    I know most of us have known that Ray Daniels had been ousted. But what is interesting that I never knew was the reason for the remasters.

    I always assumed the reason for the Remasters was to drum up interest in Classic VH. But the RD thing makes sense.

    Wouldn't he also receive royalties on the old ones that WEREN'T remastered, i.e. 5150, FUCK, etc.? Why didn't they just remaster them all? That would fuck up his royalties big time!

    Well, at least the part about Ray wanting royalties from past VH albums was true according to Sammy's book.

    Ray, I really hope you come across a big VH fan off the street. Don't wanna know what would happen.

    It still blows me away that an established act like VH would give a portion of their catalog album sales to a new manager. I know Eddie isn't the best businessman in the music biz, but jesus, what were they thinking?
