After reading the post from Marco that he is playing in Seattle with Eldar, it got me to thinking about compensation for touring. Is transportation taken care of (paid for)? What about accomodations and meals? Is it per diem? What about transporting your bass? Who pays? Does it come out of your pocket? Inquiring minds want to know. I guess these are general business questions and I figure the more experienced can answer these without getting into specific dollar amounts.
