~THE TRUTH ABOUT WHO IS RESPONSIBLE~ (and it's NOT VFTW)
I tried to get this message out in the other post having to do with this subject, but it seemed like it got "lost in translation" a bit..
What is going on w/ FLT is NOT about a message board "war of words" or 'fans versus haters", as it were, the real issue at stake is THIS:
WANNA SEE WHO IS AT FAULT FOR THIS MESS? Lemme introduce you to Dr. Luke, rip-off collaborator extrordinaire..And the reason Daughtry's GOOD NAME is being dragged through the mud...(This guy has NOTHING to do w/ the VFTW stuff, and I think that may be where some of the confusion is. this man is a record producer/collaborator/songwriter)
THIS is the "brilliant mind" who has targeted
unsuspecting, honest artists who thought they were getting a hand up in the industry by working with him. Hit maker? HIT TAKER.
He's struck before. ( THIS IS THE 5TH ALLEGATION OF PLAGERISM IN JUST 3 YEARS AGAINST THIS GUY) Just ask Avril Lavigne . she got sued because of this guy. remember 'Girlfriend"? Yeah- Dr. Luke's handywork. Only it was SOMEBODY ELSE'S handywork before Dr. Luke got a hold of it and re-packaged it, without Avril's knowledge...(And it ended up costing her ALOT of money to settle the case, and hurt her reputation as a result)
This Dr. Luke guy is like the "Spirit Fingers" dance- coach- for- hire in the movie "Bring it On".. He goes around peddling the same "routine" to INNOCENT, unsuspecting people who think they are hiring one of "the best" in the biz..Only problem is, the routines aren't originals, exactly. Just re-tooled versions of themselves. He takes all or part of catchy songs with hit potential from groups most people have never heard of, and re-packages them for artists on the rise, and with hit potential...Without their knowledge. Then when the artists blows up big and the song blows up even bigger into a hit, and Dr. Luke gets found out, he leaves the poor, unsuspecting honest artist holding the flaming bag of poo when it hits the door (or when the S*** hits the fan, as it were)
If you hadn't heard this guy's name before, google him.
You guys- who gives a crap about what VFTW said.. or any of the hater comments posted there. It's not even about that. It's about this A-hole who pulled the wool over the eyes of many artists, including our guys.
