    I saw a topic, which someone is asking why they signed, and I didn't,.... well... 2 years ago, I signed w/ WEA.... they released our album, they made a single and one video..... but we try don't push too hard, we did almost everything that they wanted... that was the first mistake... then, something happened, the president of the brazilian WEA, went to Latin WEA, and came another president, which sent our album to hell.... now, we don't have the music, we don't have the album, we don't have our success.... I heard that BMG and Sony was looking for us right after we signed w/ wea... but our manager was a great friend of the guy who went to Mexico... and, the new guy didn't like what we did on MTV, cuz we had no experience at all on TV, and we talk BS (the second mistake-before being famous, don't say what you want!).... the thruth is that we were one of the best reggae bands in Brazil, we had fans, even when we were independent, we had attitude, grip, punch, a future... now, we can't stand anymore... there's no band anymore... no album, no music, no inspiration to keep going, now there's just great stories about this episode.... and, now I ask you guys, is better to say NO?????..... that would change everything...

    Everyone gets kicked somehow and someway in life. You live and learn, and move on. If your goal is still to make music, don't let a set back stop you. Go over it, under it, around it, or through it. What we experience makes us stronger and wiser. Keep going after your dream.
