I am guessing the name is owned by The Hollies Ltd., and would imagine that Tony, Bob and probably Allan are the majority "stockholders". Whether there are other "investors" is unknown, to me. Rob would probably be the sole forum member with any info on this.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I believe that Allan lost his equity interest in the Hollies corporate name when he left the group after the Distant Light recordings.

When he came back in '73, I'm pretty sure that Allan was an employee (a highly compensated one, to be sure).

It is pretty ironic, I suppose, that Allan & Graham were employees in 1983 of the group that they had created twenty years earlier.

Thanks Bruce and Rob,
The reason I asked that question was with Carl passing away and Alan leaving I have heard fans say if Tony left then they would not bother following the band. I had an idea that Tony owned the name so if he said that's it, then that would spell the end for the Hollies.
Bye,
Anthny
