From The Dirt Miami
"Fresh on the heels of reading in Rollingstone that Scissor Sister's lead singer Jack Shears told off FYE at a recent National Association of Recording Merchandisers convention for pricing CD's too high at $20 bucks a pop, what do we see? That our beloved Specs of 5th and Collins has been transformed into a big bad FYE! We're sad, we loved us that Specs."
