The Full List Of Masters Lost In The Universal Studios Fire Is Revealed

-

The latest from the ongoing fallout from the 2008 Universal Studios fire is that a new and detailed list of artists whose original works have been lost has been released by The New York Times. The likes of Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails, Guns N’ Roses have lost masters, and now 700 names have been added to the 100-strong list, and this new report documents how the record company stated that “more than 100,000 masters and an estimated 500K song titles had burned.”

A number of artists, that include – Soundgarden, Hole, Steve Earle, the estate of Tupac Shakur, and Tom Petty’s ex-wife – have now filed lawsuits seeking “compensatory damages in an amount in excess of $100 million”.

Courtney Love has let her thoughts be known via an email to The New York Times, she wrote: “No-one knows for sure yet, specifically what is gone from their estate, their catalog. But for once in a horrible way people believe me about the state of the music business which I would not wish on my worst enemy. Our culture has been devastated, meanwhile, UMG is online with cookie recipes and pop, as if nothing happened. It’s so horrible.”

Of the many, many, masters to have perished, there were many rock and metal artists whose recordings and legacy may have been affected in the fire, you can check out the full list here.

Please note: we say ‘may have been affected’ as there is no official confirmation as to which masters specifically were destroyed. But if the list below is any indication, this is nothing short of tragic.
