Popbitch on EMI Chair Guy Hands

Primal Scream and Suede were defrauded by an accountant who used this ‘fruit and flowers’ loophole to steal half their money while Billy Idol supposedly favoured ‘champagne and flowers.’ Wonder who prefers candles?” [Popbitch]

    I don’t know about you guys but I’d take some hot ass over paying for some lousy band’s full advance anyday.
