I think we're actually agreening on this DiosSword!
Music publishing is a mess!
Remember reading about the german band Helloween who, back in the day at least, pretty much gave credit to only the one person who contributed the most but when the money came in they split everything in equal shares amongst the band members and the producer. That is a pretty fair way of putting it also. Although the history books probably won't remember...
Regarding The Who it is one iof the few bands that I sense almost (but only almost) the same togetherness between the musicians as Black Sabbath in therir music. Even though Townshend wrote moste of it by himself, you can't really take one of the other guys out the equation, it's just not the same. Kind of funny reading statements like the one from your girlfriend then (just to be clear: I'm not doubting it/her a bit!).
Saw the at their latest tour. Only two of them left and it was kind of touching at the end of the show.
