Full article:

Carl Leighton-Pope (agent, Carl Leighton Pope Organisation) : I did a Styx tour in 1981, with a gig in Gothenburg, which did not sell well. The Styx management people were making a big issue of getting an accurate count of what they called the deadwood, meaning unsold tickets. So I kept haranguing the Swedish promoter, Thomas Johansson, about the deadwood to the point where he eventually came in with a big waste paper bin and upturned it over my head. I was covered in tickets and he said, 'There’s the deadwood. You count them if you want to.’"
