Damn Yankees Singer Says Label Payed Them $1 Million To NOT Make An Album

  • Damn Yankees singer Jack Blades says his band was once paid a million dollars – to NOT make an album.
  • He says the band – which also included Ted Nugent and Styx’s Tommy Shaw – was getting ready to make its third record when “there was a scene change.  That was right around the time that Nirvana changed everything.”
  • With the label focused on grunge rock, Blades says Warner paid “a million dollars not to do another Damn Yankees record.”  His response: “Really? OK, we’ll just take the check.  Why not?”
