But you are correct in saying that the money that generally sustains a band derives from merchandise bought at shows - although most bands struggle to break even from tours once sustenance and essentials are paid for.

I should have been slightly clearer. Sure they make "money" but generally its enough to substain cd production.

And to CTL. Other than the fact that thats not neccesarily the case anymore you're still right. Its part of the way it goes. If you want to attempt to go through the wickens to download a game, be prepared for the side effects that could happen as a result, especially if you have no idea what you're doing. And personally to me if you don't know what you're doing.. stay the hell off a computer. k?
