Entertainer Can't Sell Music in Music Stores 

The LA Times tells the sad story of a fading country singer that can no longer sell records in music stores. Only crappy Walmart will sell his stuff:

"Country music superstar Garth Brooks is hanging his Stetson at Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Two months after ending his 16-year relationship with Capitol Records, Brooks has used his newfound freedom to cut a deal to sell his music exclusively through the world's largest retailer, the company announced Friday. "


Even more humiliating, they made him dance like a monkey for their rich stockholders:

Brooks' deal comes at a time when he has effectively put his recording and performing career on hold to spend time with his family. But Brooks sang at Wal-Mart's annual shareholders meeting in June, wearing a blue smock like the ones worn by store employees."


It is so sad.
