you guys probably allready know this but i thought i would post it anyways...
"Celebrity Justice" reports: VAN HALEN and back-again lead singer Sammy Hagar
are selling thousands of tickets for their summer tour, and that means big-time cash forů former lead singer David Lee
Roth? That's right, because as 'CJ' reveals, top musicians don't have to play onstage to get well paid. It's all about doing the rights thing, and as the summer concert season heats up, so are the rights fights.
As entertainment attorney Barry Littman explains, Roth gets paid even though he's not touring with VAN HALEN because, legally, he is a composer of all of VAN HALEN's early original work.
"If you have an immensely successful concert that's focused on David Lee Roth-VAN HALEN tunes, he's going to see more money than if VAN HALEN never went on tour," Littman notes. "The composers of the song are listed and each of them will have the right to get paid for anybody else performing their song live."
