Nightwish, Amorphis, Delain and More Fire Booking Agent John Finberg....

I posted about this guy in the Nightwish thread. Basically, it seems like he was a Weinstein-type (or worse) in the metal industry.

Some pretty disturbing stuff in that metals sucks article.

Hope they are able to hook up with good representation that will continue to bring them to the US. A lot of bands I like are under the First Row umbrella.

Yeah.... it seems more and more are cutting this guy off. Lots of annoucements via IG. Sonata Arctica apparently cut ties with him back in January.

Finally got through that article. Wow. I'm sad that I've sent a lot of money his way through "EnterTheVault" and probably other avenues over the years.

Glad the bands finally united against him.

Same here. I actually feel sick to my stomach because I purchased VIP and other tickets through them over the years.

I know a number of musicians in the Bay Area who have worked with him. Every single one of them are saying they're not at all surprised by the article. They all cut ties with him a long time ago.

Not sure where to put this, but for all intents and purposes, Delain has broken up. Sounds like from the various members they are just no longer on the same page creatively or monetarily.

Seems like one of the co-founders(Martijn Westerholt) pulled an assholish move.

Pretty shitty considering what the band has accomplished over the last ten years.

I've seen them a few times over the years. The singer is gorgeous.

Yeah, that's what I got out of it too. I'm kinda bummed, I always tried to catch them (and do the VIP meet/greet) every time they came to the US. I like them a lot.

I wonder if Charlotte is going to be allowed to sing any of their songs, she cowrote a lot of them.

No need to stray from the rock n roll/metal scene for comparisons. He's basically a Kim Fowley-type.
