The Daily Express has a lengthy article about belt-tightening at record labels in the UK that tosses around some jaw-dropping numbers: a £160,000 hotel bill for Paris Hilton and her entourage, an £800,000 tab for the attempted All Saints revival. But there was one blind item in the piece that caught our eye:
One six-piece American rock band are being challenged by their label over their need for a personal bodyguard each to fly to the UK – despite them being less than recognisable in Britain.
We have no idea who this could be–we’ve spent a good chunk of this afternoon researching six-member bands from the States, and the only answer we could come up with, after realizing that Bon Jovi had pared itself down to a five-piece, was Toto. (Insert joke about them “holding the line” here.) Ideas?
