Court Backs Beasties
AP reports: The Beastie Boys might have to fight for their right to party, but they won't have to defend themselves against claims they stole part of a jazz flutist's recording. 

Without comment Monday, the Supreme Court let stand a lower court ruling against jazz artist James W. Newton. Newton contended that the punk rappers' 1992 song "Pass the Mic" included a sample from his musical composition "Choir" without his full permission. 

The Beastie Boys paid a licensing fee for the six-second, three-note segment of Newton's work but failed to pay an additional fee to license the underlying composition. [see full story for more] - Click Here for the Full Story

NBC Dropped The Ball
BW&BK reports: It was reported last week that NIGHT RANGER were scheduled to appear on NBC's new program, Hit Me Baby, One More Time, but had since pulled out of the program....guitarist Jeff Watson... has issued a detailed reply on the situation and told MelodicRock.com.... Night Ranger was slated to appear on Hit Me Baby One More Time on NBC, and we had already interrupted our recording schedule to record and turn in to NBC the edited TV track of ‘Sister Christian'. We also spent an entire day filming interviews and background video material to be used on the show. What precluded us from being able to do the show at that time was that, as you know, the bands need to pick a second recent hit song by someone else to perform and we were without a second song. We chose and re-chose, and submitted and resubmitted 7 to 10 songs to perform (from a list and guideline of songs provided us) that NBC couldn't get cleared to use. (all songs have to be cleared for use on Television, Film, etc.,. by the composer and publisher). [see full story for the full statement]- Click Here for the Full Story

It was this cross bracing that held the roof to the stage. 4 other stagehands, who were also under the structure managed to escape without injury. This was a completely avoidable tragedy.
