Okay heres the deal, I recently joined a newly organized original project that has released a 6 song demo with the previous bassist, and they now want me to re record my bass lines at my expense. I really dont have an issue with doing this. However my concerns are that the singer who writes all the melodies and lyrics has, and wants to continue to hold all licensing rights for all the material under his name only. All checks mailed to him. His quote to all of us was Whats the matter? You dont trust me? I wont @#$@ ya: I just dont feel comfortable putting allot money, and time into this only to find out latter on that I shouldnt have trusted him. Should I just cross my fingers and hope for the best, assuming the music goes somewhere, and he is true to his word? Or should we push for having all members legally given licensing rights? Then we would have the obstacle of getting past the trust thing, without insulting his integrity. How would you guys handle this situation?
