Good for you man! Yeah, I quit them right after they lost their court battle with that little new upstart union in the mid '70's. - and the funny thing is I never really had any union problems after that. I do know that when I was touring with one group on Pickwick/Delite they would tell the local union reps that we all were union (even though none of us were) and that was that! It was funny in retrospect. By contrast, and I guess in support of what Tommy P. was saying, I've been a member of ASCAP for sometime now and I feel that they've been a fairly decent organization - and membership dues are only $15.00 per annum!!!
