NZ Idol 1: Michael also dropped by Sony?

Submitted by admin on 5 January, 2006 - 10:46pm

If Michael's new band is releasing an unsigned single (which is what appears to be the case), then I guess Michael was dropped by Sony too?

Anyone know any more info about this?

he is probably better off

he is probably better off with a new company and manager anyway! he was getting held back!

Umm on that 'Win tickets to

Umm on that 'Win tickets to 5Star Fallout' thing underneath the picture of him it says
"Michael Murphy
DO-it Management Ltd"
What's that? *confused*

Michael Broke Up With Sony

Michael Broke Up With Sony BMG And Now He Got His Own Company

Interesting!  Wonder what

Interesting!  Wonder what happened there then. Like why was he dropped.  Has he a new record company, or is he doing it on his like Ben at the moment?

Anyone know anything about his new manager?

Doesn't seem like BMG wants anything to do with anyone connected with 'Idol'.  Their loss, but loss of the rest of the country too, if that means none of the fans get a chance to continue to hear their Idols.

Back to the old question - WHAT IS WRONG WITH SONY/BMG? Why don't they promote and use those popular singers signed to them?

yes loyal Michael has a new

yes loyal Michael has a new manager BUT it is for the band not Michael...I am sure he has cut ties with anything to do with Idol.

I assume when Michael cut ties with Paul Ellis that was the end of Sony BMG...

Good luck to them....

In those interviews they

In those interviews they said Michael would still be signed to Sony/BMG even though he wouldn't be managed by Paul any more...

Yeah...but BMG put a band

Yeah...but BMG put a band together for him.

Dunno, but Micheal and

Dunno, but Micheal and Michael's band are two different entities, are they not? Like, er, Phil Collins and Genesis, or Sting and The Police. Just because Phil is signed to a label, doesn't mean Genesis is signed to the same label.

SO michael is a totally

SO michael is a totally different thing to 5starfallout.. :| ..

Maybe!!
That's why, whilst I hate boy-bands, it's even worse when they break up because then you get four or five solo artists peddling the same cr*p

You'd only get four or five

You'd only get four or five solo artists peddling the same cr*p, as you put it, if they all decided that that was what they wanted to do after they broke up ... if they break up, I reckon, it would be highly unlikely that all of them would still want to stay in the industry.

And anyway, I wouldn't really class 5 Star Fallout as a boy band, to be honest ... sure, they're boys and their in a band, but their not my idea of a boy band!  ;) 

I hope we don't. That would

I hope we don't. That would be terrible :s
