eek eek eek Country Music lost a TON of history in this fire. The artists affected probably make up half of its present or future Hall of Famers, and those are just the ones I spotted.

Finally, it seems to me that the jazz world took the hardest hit. So many of its founding fathers' and mothers' masters were destroyed. There isn't an era or subgenre (swing, bebop, hard bop, post bop, free, fusion, etc.) that didn't suffer a loss.

I somehow believe that if there is a heaven that Prince is looking down and saying THIS is why I always wanted my work and my tapes in my possession.

I am so glad they had already done an expanded remastered version of her debut album. But what about the rest? That is definitely lawsuit-worthy.

I still think there is more to this story, mainly because I have not heard any issues from certain artists on this list, namely ELTON and Don Henley, two guys that would have been shouting from the mountain tops about this. One reason mainly could be that both own their stuff, Elton has owned it for a long time, and countless remastering have been done. Don I am not sure what he owns but knowing him he owns everything or has copies of copies. I did hear a bit from Dave Grohl about Nirvana and he mainly said he thinks In Utero made it OK because they remastered that more recently and those masters were moved but I dont think he was too sure where Nevermind was, not that he really has a major claim for that stuff, his FOO work they own everything from the masters to the clothing to the distribution etc...AS far as Law suits, its case by case because if they don't own things and have no liabiltity or insurance etc..however that all works a lot might just be screwed.
