I'm not anti-Greg Shaw. I think he's done more good than anything but you can't be 100 % on EVERYBODY. Even Greg could be a little underhanded if he saw an opportunity, in this case, the Sonics LP. And if he'd just been a little more honest with bands stating that he would support them by putting their name out but it was going to be up to them to make their own money because honestly, he was just doing this as a fan and losing money (which I believe is true). But he never did, which is probably why a lot of bands starting having a lot of animosity toward him. It seems like only after SAVING THE WORLD ONE RECORD AT A TIME, did we get the real picture.
