Sugar Man- Copyright and fraud lawsuit filed against Clarence Avant

Two years after Oscar-winning film, Searching for Sugar Man raised questions about royalties for Sixto Rodriguez , a copyright and fraud lawsuit has been filed against Clarence Avant , who signed the Detroit singer to a record deal more than four decades ago. Rodriguez is not a direct party in the complaint, filed in Detroit federal court by Gomba Music , which is owned by longtime Michigan music executive Harry Balk . But the musician does stand to benefit if Gomba is successful. Speaking with the Detriot Free Press, Avant denied wrongdoing. “I think I’ve been pretty fair to Rodriguez all along,” said Avant, 83. “I wish him nothing but the best, because I think he deserves it. I admire the nerve.”  Gomba said it had an exclusive songwriting deal with Rodriguez that was willfully ignored by Avant , whose Los Angeles-based Venture Records released the musician’s “Cold Fact” album in 1970 . Gomba holds songwriting copyrights for those Rodriguez songs, the complaint

Chip Esten lives the good life!

On May 7th, 2014 Chip Esten performed a free concert in Washington, D.C., as part of a three day event hosted by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), centered around a critical call-to-action: Leading the Way to a World without Blood Cancers. Spry Living chatted with the Southern heartthrob to learn more about his daughter’s battle with leukemia, working on the set of Nashville and more. SL: What was it like having a young child with cancer?  CE: A couple of weeks before Addie’s diagnosis, we had been sitting in a hospital waiting room for an unrelated health issue. There had been a group of pediatric chemo patients sitting in the waiting room with their parents. The children had that distinct chemo “look” about them: they had lost their hair; their faces were swollen. As an actor, what struck me most, however, was that it wasn’t all morose and dramatic. The children were playing with the waiting room toys and books; the parents were casually talking to one another. I w

ABC's Nashville renewed for season 3

ABC's "Nashville" has been renewed. The news was announced by Ben Sherwood, co-president of Disney ABC Television Group, at 11:36 p.m. CT. "Congratz and welcome back for Season 3 to @Nashville_ABC," he tweeted, naming stars Connie Britton, Charles Esten, creator Callie Khouri and "the whole Nashville team and loyal fans."  According to a tweet from the show's transmedia producer, Geoffrey Colo, the show will return for a full 22-episode season. "Nashville" had been considered "on the bubble" between renewal and cancellation throughout its second season. The Nielsen company reported that it has averaged 4.5 million viewers in season 2, which is a 9 percent decrease from its first season. But as a musical force and multmedia brand, it has continued to grow. The show released its fourth soundtrack album with Big Machine Records earlier this month, with more than 600,000 total albums sold to date. The top-sellin

My Baby won't stop my rocking! says Imelda May - VIDEO

“I love my baby, she has changed my whole life, my priority is her,” says May, 39. “Violet is the boss at the moment. She is coming into the Terrible Twos and telling me what to do. But I still want to rock out. I still have my own personality. I’m not going to lose my own self.” Imelda May is no X-Factor poppet, she is a proper musician who has been slogging away since she was a teenager, two decades ago. For years she worked day shifts in a care home and sang in pubs and clubs at night. Now she duets with Bono, swaps baby photos with Sir Elton John and sings for the Queen (drawing salty praise from the Duke of Edinburgh, but we’ll come to that). Why is it all happening for her now? “I don’t know! It’s gone mad. All I can say is I’m working hard.” Read More Here Source - Telegraph
