It's a lie. This started in April or March I can't remember. The rumor went along the lines of Clear Channel buying Roo. It's all a lie. Think about it, Clear Channel likes sh!tty music, the roo has good music, therefore clear channel won't like roo.
Clear Channel has nothing to do with Bonnaroo. As far as "they don't like good music", they like music that makes money for them AND the artists. Many artists have no problem working with CC because they like making money, even though they may "pretend" not to..ie The Dead(Clear Channel was the promoter for Terrapin Station...the first big Dead reunion.) Contrary to popular opinion, Clear Channel is no more evil than Capitalism itself. The money IS more important than the art to them, but that is no different than any other publically owned company who has to report to its stockholders. That's how Capitalism works. I'm really not a right winger...my God, I'm not even a republican, but if people think there are companies out there who aren't interested in profits first, you're living in a dream world.
