I was just thinking earlier, I think I was in a bad mood at the time, and I was thinking that maybe its a bit inappropriate to continue a sponsorship deal after the player has died. Because it could be seen that Dean are making money off the memory of someone, I mean they do have 'tribute' guitars, but they at the end of the day they are still profiting from the death of someone and it could be argued that their advertising these instruments as 'tribute' implies a nobler aspiration than the reality of the situation, that it is possibly done for profit. Basically is it morally right to continue to use, for profit, the name, legacy and reputation of someone who has passed away?
Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I only mean to find out and discuss some opinions, I haven't really formed one, so I'd like to hear from anyone with any ideas on this.
