    Andre C is alright by me, so his voice here resonates.

    However I hope this is resolved swiftly satisfactorily to all parties and most importantly out of the public eye.
    No one plans to take the path that brings you lower

    Forget your perfect offering.
    There is a crack - a crack in everything.
    That's how the light gets in.

    Well, the anecdotal evidence is beginning to favor Jobson, which is frankly a relief. May it all be resolved, somehow, quickly and equitably - whatever that turns out to mean in this case!

    Let's get to the important stuff, already.

    What does Steven Wilson think about this?

    He says they're all derivative crap.

    There is a difference between Andre's and Alex's working relationships with Eddie vs. John Wetton though. Andre and Alex were hired for a particular purpose. They didn't write and release material with Eddie. Again, we don't know anything, but when you get into royalty payments, it's a much more dynamic situation involving accountants and calculations. If you're hired to play guitar on a tour, you have a set monetary amount that you have agreed upon up front. Royalties are very potentially much messier and less transparent.
