Re: Contracts for The Pros
Typically, a name 'artist' will get more than their individual backing musicians, and I don't know of anyone who's been presumptuous enough to argue that arrangement (and remain employed.)
With a band situation, the split is assumed to be even, but I'm sure there are some special arangements in situations where there are unoriginal members, non-writing members, etc.
Anyone who thinks it's unfair can take it up with the band's HR department.
HR... I kill me!
