Yes it's true - the performing rights agencies pay out due to a number of factors, but mainly due to the artists' positions in the charts. However the artists have signed their rights over to them, so it's their own bloody fault .

For long you live and high you fly, but only if you ride the tide, and balanced on the biggest wave you race towards an early grave.
