It sounds like the camp is withholding APs, despicable if true

Global is blaming GNR but I'm not 100% sure who has absolute say.  I'd think that would fall on the band.  Either way, they're both assholes about it.

He reached out to me but really didn't seem to care, then got shitty because I made disparging remarks about the band.  I mean, GNR is complicit.  They let it happen.  Are they at fault in the end?  No.  That said, they knew there wouldn't be APs and were totally ok with that.  Apparently the extra $150 or so per set of 20 APs would be too much money out of their pockets.

Again, good managers find ways to take care of their vendors

100% correct.  The last AD at Global, Ted Mattes, was AWESOME about that.  He ALWAYS got us APs, usually 50, which is very generous.  They forced him out, though.  Because looking out for the artists doesn't seem to be part of Global's business model.

Do you have a signed contract?

There were agreements and prescedents in place.  But there's no way that they would ever have a formal contract for that.  Wouldn't fit their model.

Ah for fuck's sake, this is depressing. 

With this and the filing legal challenges against bootleg t-shirt sellers it's just ramming it down our throats that money is such a driving force now. I wish it was otherwise as it all just seems to be greed on top of something that is highly profitable anyway. 

Just sad to see.

I understand going after bootleg stuff.  That's just wrong.  But screwing over artists who have been making them awesome posters is bad business.

Thanks a lot.  I appreciate the kind words.  It's a bummer that they'll never see the light of day.  I'm still very proud of my work even though it's for a band that I now hate.  It's sad, I grew up LOVING them.  I always thought of them as THE antiestablishment band.  Sadly they're just a money machine.  Nothing more.

Now is perfectly appropiate the ABSURD word :(  you work is excellent. 👍

I am really sorry man. I have a number of your posters from shows I attended and really value your work now and for many years to come.  That’s disappointing to hear what happened and is another strike against Gn’R and further erosion of my support for the band 

I haven’t had much of an opinion on how GnR is managed or it’s management team, but they really are negligent. No enterprise with this much economic might should be managed by someone so inexperienced, callous, and unprofessional.  Hopefully they make it right. If not, hope you and other artists box out Gn’R from your services

This was the concept for Vegas.  1976 Topps football design.  Would have had the inside of Allegiant Field in the background.

I got tix for the vegas show, so very excited! 

 

I'm assuming that they went with a different design?

 

Do you have an Instagram?
