They had a meet&greet with their fans before the show. The band sat behind a long table and signed tour posters for the VIP members. I'm pretty sure you were supposed to just say "hi" an ...

Well, I was just trying to calculate the amount of money an artist would get for X streams, not how much money that particular artist makes. Anyway, numbers aside I think you and I can at least both a ...

Interesting! I had no idea that you were controlling Arnold Layne this whole time, although the timing was a bit suspicious. It makes me wonder if other puppet accounts exist on the Stratoforum. Laughing
