Got into it but had to put it aside for the last couple of weeks due to my daughter's wedding. Expect to finish it during the next few days or so.
Re record companies, don't forget they make up their own rules as they go along re who can buy, at what price, when they must pay and how many copies of a record or CD they can sell. It is a very dirty business all round with the big guys trying to screw anyone not bowing to them or trying to change an unbalanced system.
Without Virgin's distribution many great artistes would have never come to the public notice (my wife would say Mike Oldfield never should - I love his stuff!!).
I wouldn't transfer anything to do with the record business at either the recording or distribution end to the airline business and, let's face it, everyone protects their own empire and, whilst most of the public love Branson, the major institutions would love to see him fall on his face or do a Laker.
The two times I have dealt with him directly, he has been straightforward, helpful and, although once not able to agree to a request, he pointed me in a direction which solved my problem, taking the time to ease my way.
