I got dropped from Rock Ridge Records today, which is fine. They wanted to remove "Tribute to 'Rapper's Delight'" from the Sandman Live and Suspicious cd for fear of getting sued for copyright infringement. Andras and I decided that they should pay to get the lyrics cleared if they were so worried. They got mad. We defended ourselves. They pulled the deal. It's over. I feel relieved for some reason. I hate kissing butt to business people. Now I own the record, again. Who needs distribution? My fan base is not typically the people at Sam Goody, and I actually prefer doing things in a more grassroots manner. This doesn't mean I'm not open to a big label someday. I'll wait, though.
