When Rick wanted to sell me his six string guitar that he never used any more as he now played bass, I was amazed that he wanted to sell it as he had it a long time and used to use it in the early days of playing in Dave's Band. I said to him, 'yes I will buy it, but don't you want to keep it for sentimental reasons, surely you don't need money as you are in the charts and really doing well'. It was then he told me that he and the others were on a set weekly wage, and quite frankly I was shocked when he told me what they were pulling down a week, I knew what other chart making Bands were getting roughly for one night stands as I had friends in other top ranking Bands such as 'The Kinks', and 'The Troggs' and a few other Bands in the charts, so believe me the members in Dave's Band were earning a 'good' weekly wage compered to the ordinary working man in the street at the time, they were only getting a small fraction of what the Band was making from tours,T V shows etc. Rick told me that Mike, Len' and Den' were making more than him as Dave let them keep half of of the song writing royalty from the songs that they wrote. And if anyone doubts what I say is true remember that when the Band broke up the members (apart from Dave) could not afford to 'chill out' for a year or so with their respective families, they had to get money coming back into their homes, and get it pretty damn quick!!
