Following  Monday’s MetalSucks report detailing numerous allegations against booking agent John Finberg over the course of the past two decades his main artists Nightwish and many other came out and fired him .

Now Ipek Warnock , the lead singer of the band Wykked Wytch made post about her experiences regarding Finberg back in the days 1997.

The question is: Everyone who has been worked with him has been silent, like years? The bands, their management’s, Record labels?

He represents or represented many worldwide known artists and is also the sole owner of a website called Enterthevault.com, an internet ticket sales site and besides the music business. He used to be one of the owners in Finnish bar in Helsinki called “Komppi” and also having some business in thailand regarding his interview. So he might be definitely very powerful person in many level to make people silent ? But question is why?

Finberg’s email towards Ipek.
