Steve is also a personal friend of mine, and I can safely say that the man researches around the clock. It's absolutely mental the amount of work he puts into his books, now if there was only one like this for the gaming industry.
Plus, a contract offered to a new, hitherto unsigned band is often badly skewed in favour of the label. The band has very little leverage and it's not a level playing field.
Moore also discusses the typical cut from the royalties. Taken by the label for the cost of promotions. Like mailing free CDs of the band's music to radio stations and reviewers. Unwary musicians often don't realise how much of their already minimal royalties can get eaten up this way.
