  1. Frank and the Sinatra's knew of me well, on The Sinatra Family Website. I posted years ago.

    Frank Jr. was an incredible music historian. Especially, anythimg regarding his father. To hear him talk was an amazing experience. A very gifted speaker to add on to his outstanding leadership as a band director.  

    He performed at a small club in England, merely by a fans' request to hear him sing and perform his father's songs. Someone wrote him their need for money assistance.. Frank Jr. helped him out. He was there for all of his fans.

    Onstage, when the bluelight was on him, he looked just like his father. Frank Jr. you gave with your heart and sang with dedication and your soul.

    Open the door, Frank Jr. has walked into Heaven!

  2. All of the endearing ladies from this site. I think some authors were there, too.

    Popdude went through the wrong entrance.

    One of Wally's close friends made the trip, from Canada. He had Thanksgiving Dinner with The Bryson's, sharing all of their stories about the band and songs.

  3. I wonder what Kanye will say at this year's Grammy Awards. He called Taylor Swift The 'B' word. on his new album....That he made the ' 'B' famous.

    Come on now, Kanye. Your wife, mom, aunt and whoever else wouldn't agree with your choice of words. Your wife would have slapoed you, if you saod that to her. I bet they didn't know, until your album was in print.

  4. Youtube has a conbo package for songs and streaming videos.$ 9.99 per month.

    Garth Broks sat down to talk to one sie. Not sure it was YouTube, but I think it was a very popular site. He was one of the last to have his songs streamed, for lack of pay for his work.

    Even T.V. shows are streaming on the internet. Far more watch on the internet, it is said now.

    Artists like Taylor Swift changed from being paid pennies on one site.

    And singer Adele broke some new album release record. A new online world record. Nothing from her in years.

  5. Misspelled 'streaming'.

    I haven't read all the posts, being in a rush this morning.

     

    So, you can use facebook or other sites to redirect people, and tell other artists to get onto more streaming sites.

    But, I. think that it is great for any new or an established artist to put short versions of their songs on Youtube. This way, people will want more of the entire song. [ Why don't more artists do this?-]

     

    I did some of the sound for some new group. More coming up. They are good. But, I will see what I think of their next recording to tell who they are. One of the artists has a screen actors guild card. He called me up last week, to record in a few weeks.

    We recorded live video in a large white screen back screen, as they sang over their own pre-recorded vocals. We spent three late hours on a four to five minute+ song. I told them on each acting/ talking take whether it was a good or bad take. Sometimes, the singing was behind the original soudtrack, an obvious visual mistake. (Words heard when the person wasn't singing). Using Bluetooth from the pre-recorded vocal,  the singing played through the studio speakers through a phone. And also  the studio video/vocal recorder at the same tine, singing over the original vocal, and live to video.

    The last song had a heavy message, about living the right way.

  6. And, on your facebook page, you can tell everyone artists you like, and what type of song it is. Is it. an easy listening song that you suggest to others, because of how the mood and lyrical good sence it makes you feel, etc. Rock, Country Music and on it goes.

  7. I would do the same thing, too. All of us can go to other streeming sites to pay , now.

    You notice though, that music radio has been far ahead of internet music streeming.  You freely hear music,  all the time.

    I don't feel bad, since artists get a share from radio play, albeit maybe a small amount.

    So, enter now to a new steeming situation to more possible profits.

    It is very wise to put music on several steeming sites, and gaining your residual dues from them 

     

  8. Now, to the particular choices we all make, and what can we do for any change with online music. Well, the Beatles, on Christmas Eve,(Happy Crimble was the greeting) have ageed with Universal Music to now do. prepaid music on about nine streeming sites. 

    So artists can change to doing this way, also.

    I always thought it was wise to perform songs or play a concert.  Getting a higher dollar play, in doing so.

  9. Excellente, James! What an observation Susie B. about James.

    I also enjoy Youtube. I do like what one teacher did. He realized that all people can't afford an education. So, he and others put all schooll studies on YouTube. Math, Science, Algebra and. Calculus Math, I'm gussing. Anyone can become educated through a learning series of online classes.

  10. Raspberries mentioned on Plaschke and Zelasko sports  radio. show, a couple of weeks ago.  The ' ever wondrous, knowledgeable -[ and more platitudes]Jeanne said,  someone was watching a Raspberries Video on the in studio screen. A producer, or someone.  I think she meant the music band, because she didn't say Raspberries commercial. And with The Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack, someone might have wondered about who played on the song. which went Platinum and sold one million copies, but probably played. 20 times more, around the world. Both privately,  and on the radio. Or, someone was listening to another song.

     Both are outstanding hosts and they are also on podcast and you can playback interviews regarding concussions as part of the discussion as well as  the new Will Smith football movie about the character's concussions which debuts on Christmas Day. I think Jeanne is originally from New Jersey.

  11. I hope they can resolve it, too. 

    Billy Joel had to sue his former brother-in-law. If I remember,  it was over 16 million dollars that Billy didn't get, earlier.

    Surprising to me were other families with T.V. ministries in the news, in the the past:

    The Robert Schuller Hour Of Power Ministries-

    The elders of the church didn't like Robert Jr.'s teaching style, different from his father's who had stepped down from the pulpit, because of health issues. And they were losing T.V. viewers. So, Robert Jr. left to a bigger T.V. ministry that is more popular. His sister taught for a few years. The church was sold and became a catholic church. Robert Jr. was there to hand over the future to them. 

    The Crouch family, of the TBN Minitries had a big argument over money, after their father's death who started the T.V. ministry.

    Jim Neighnors, famous for Gomer Pile acting character- Eight or nine family relatives argued over money and the house he owned.

  12. We've seen this happen to late actor Gary Coleman. His management spent everything he had;  He had to go back to work ,again.

    Singer Billy Joel, only given little money for a highly successful early album in his career. I think it was around $20, 000. Even while his songs were played, constantly on the radio.

    Radio weekly top 40 radio host Casey Casem. His last wife wouldn't let his own children see him, or to have a say so in his dying last days for healthcare needs. He ended up with bedsores.  She sent his body to Sweden or something. Only she knows where he is buried.

    These are examples for why. Eric needs to gain control over this fund issue. Otherwise, who gets the money later, could be decided by his brother. Perhaps taking more than his appropiate share. And giving less to others. Eric's loved ones deserve the correct future of inheritance, later.  And the continuation of a fund to pay over time to them, also.  ( If he wants to give them more over a longer time, rather than all of it at once). And to continue using the fund for chaitable causes, if he chooses.
